Washington, DC — Second District Congressman Alex Mooney has announced his process for nominating students in his district to the nation’s service academies.
“Nominating young people to serve in our nation’s service academies is one of the highest privileges of my office. Like my father who served in Vietnam, these young men and women are dedicating themselves to the cause of defending our freedoms,” the Republican congressman said.
“I hope West Virginia students from across the second district will learn about the process and apply,” said Mooney.
The congressman said the application deadline is October 31. The applicant must be graduating high school this spring or have graduated high school and be within the age limits set by the service institutions. The applicant must turn in a completed packet to be eligible for an interview and must have applied for one or more of the academies by the deadline established by those institutions.
Those interested should visit Mooney.house.gov and under the services tab select to request a nominations packet.
The form must be printed off and emailed to Jon.Miller@mail.house.gov or mailed to 300 Foxcroft Avenue, Suite 102, Martinsburg, WV 25401.
Questions can be directed to Miller at the Martinsburg district office, 304-264-8810.
