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, the Vice President, a Member of the US Senate, or a Member of the US House of Representatives.
Receiving a nomination is only the first step in the process of receiving an offer of an appointment to a US military service academy. In addition to the nomination, students must qualify academically and are subject to character, leadership, physical fitness, medical fitness, and motivation evaluations. Only after passing each of these evaluations are students offered an appointment to the service academy.
On Saturday, April 17, 2010, the Office of Congressman Turner will host the Annual Service Academy Day at Springboro High School from 8:30 am to 11:30 am. During this event, which is open to interested students and parents, representatives from each of the academies will be on hand to answer questions and describe academy life. Additionally, staff from Congressman Turner’s Office will be available to explain the nomination process for the class of 2015.
If interested students have questions regarding the United States service academies or nominations, they are encouraged to contact the Dayton Office of Congressman Turner at 937.225.2843.
