Lucas Congratulates Nguyen on His Acceptance of Appointment to the U.S. Military Academy

May 14, 2014

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas welcomed Danny Nguyen, Yukon, Okla. native, to his district office on Monday to congratulate him on his acceptance of appointment to the United States Military Academy at West Point.

“It is with great pleasure to congratulate Danny on his acceptance to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point,” said Lucas. “His selection is not only a testament to his dedication to serve our country, but it also demonstrates what bright and capable students we have in Oklahoma’s Third Congressional District. I am very proud of Danny, and I wish him only the best this fall and continued success in his future endeavors.” 

Nguyen is currently a student at Mustang High School in Mustang, Okla. He is a member of the Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps and plans to study engineering and military history. Additionally, he started his high school triathlon team.  He is the son of Minh and Ha Nguyen, of Yukon, Okla.

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 2014-2015 Service Academies should contact Allison Litterell in Lucas’ district office at (405) 373-1958, or visit the web site at /service-academy-nominations.
