Turner has nominated students to U.S. service academies every year since being elected to Congress in 2002, and every year at least one student has been appointed.

To be considered for an appointment to a service academy, an applicant must meet the eligibility requirements established by law and be nominated from an authorized person including a Member of the United States Senate or the House of Representatives. The Congressman can only nominate applicants who are legally domiciled within the boundaries of the Tenth District of Ohio. Receiving a nomination is only the first step in the process of receiving an offer of an appointment to a U.S. military service academy. The five students Rep. Turner announced have all been appointed.
