Washington, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas welcomed Brian Kriner, Stillwater, Okla. native, to his district office Monday to congratulate him on his acceptance of appointment to the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado.

“I am very proud of Brian and congratulate him on his acceptance to the Air Force Academy,” said Lucas. “I know this will be a tremendous experience for him, and I greatly appreciate his willingness to serve our country. I wish Brian the best of luck as he begins classes at the Academy this year.”

Kriner currently attends Stillwater High School. He is the son of Kevin and Mary Kriner of Stillwater, Okla. His father, Kevin, graduated from the Air Force Academy in 1983 and is a retired Colonel. Kriner has taken flying lessons and flew his first solo flight in 2012.

Four of our nation’s five service academies require a congressional nomination, including the United States Military Academy at West Point, the Merchant Marine Academy, the Air Force Academy, and the Naval Academy.  In order to receive a nomination, the student must be between the ages of 17 and 23 and a resident of the Third Congressional District of Oklahoma.  Each academy offers young men and women a free college education at a highly ranked, nationally recognized academic program while preparing them for an officer’s commission in the armed forces upon graduation. 

Third District students interested in applying for the 2014 Service Academies should contact Allison Litterell in Lucas’ district office at (405) 373-1958, or visit the web site at /service-academy-nominations.
