Olson Accepting Academy Nominations
Rep. Pete Olson (TX-22) today announced that U.S. Military Service Academies nomination applications are now available for the class of 2021. The honor of attending a service academy comes with an obligation and commitment to serve in the military for a minimum of five years upon graduation.
â€œOne of my most gratifying duties is to nominate young people from the 22nd congressional district of Texas wishing to become military leaders,â€ Rep. Olson said. â€œAs a former Navy pilot, I was honored to nominate seven TX-22 high school students to military academies last year. I look forward to nominating another group of talented future military leaders.â€
The deadline for the Class of 2021 is October 14, 2016. Send your high school transcripts and SAT/ACT scores to our Sugar Land office: 1650 HWY 6, Suite 150, Sugar Land, TX 77478. To request a Military Academy Nomination from my office, please complete the application found on my website at: http://1.usa.gov/23IGATy
*Please note: A congressional nomination is not a guarantee of admission. The final decision to appoint will be made by the service academy itself following the final review of medical and academic qualifications by the Service Academy Admissionâ€™s Board.
