I wish Nathaniel the best of luck as he begins classes at the Academy this year.”

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.
