Service Academy Newsletter Sign-Up

Attending one of our Nation’s five service academies is an honor and a privilege, and earning a spot at one of these prestigious academies is a competitive process. As your Congressman, one of my greatest responsibilities is nominating candidates for appointment to four of the five U.S. service academies: U.S. Military Academy (USMA), West Point, NY; the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA), Annapolis, MD; the U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA), Colorado Springs, CO; and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA), Kings Point, NY. The fifth service academy, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy (USCGA), New London, CT, does not require a congressional nomination for appointment.

Not only is the journey to our service academies competitive, but it can also be confusing and complex. If you’d like to receive regular updates, including best practices for applications, upcoming important dates, updates on current cadets who have made it through this process, and more, please sign up below! You can also find more information about this lengthy process here.

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help constituents work through issues with federal agencies. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a constituent’s behalf to get answers to questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Below you will find a list of agencies with which I can help you. However, regardless of which agency you need help navigating, you must complete a privacy authorization form to comply with the provisions of the Privacy Act. Please download this printable version of the casework authorization form and then fax or mail to the address listed under the agency from which you are seeking assistance.
