Congressman Turner released the following statement after announcing students from the tenth district who have been nominated to attend the U.S. Service Academies:

“Year after year, young men and women at such a young age raise their hand and volunteer to serve and protect this country. I am honored to recognize these students who will be attending Service Academies next year and representing Southwest, Ohio with great pride and patriotism.”

In order for a student to be considered for a military academy appointment, he or she must be recommended by an authorized nominating source. This could include the President, Vice President, a Member of the Senate or a Member of the House of Representatives.
