image003VALDOSTA – U.S. Congressman Austin Scott (GA-08) held the 2014 Military Service Academy Day at Moody Air Force Base. The event provided Eighth Congressional District high school students, parents, and counselors the opportunity to learn about and speak with representatives from the five United States Military Academies and University of North Georgia Cadet Admissions.

“It was inspiring to see so many talented, young Georgians today who want to serve our country by joining the armed forces,” said Congressman Scott. “Their attendance is a testament to their strength of character. Our future leaders are among this dedicated group that will surely lead our country to a brighter future. I wish all applicants the best of luck as they pursue their goal of attending one of the U.S. Service Academies and serving in our military.”

Academy representatives from each military service academy, which include the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado, the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York, the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, New York, and the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut, were present to provide information and answer questions about the application and admissions process. Over 150 high school students and families were in attendance and had the opportunity to tour aircraft parked at Moody Air Force Base after the event.

In addition to applying to the service academy of choice, interested students must submit their completed Military Service Academy Congressional Nomination packet to Rep. Scott’s Tifton office by October 24, 2014. More information and specific guidelines on service academy nominations are available on Rep. Scott’s website
