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.
