Mike Thompson’s (D-St. Helena) office is accepting nominations to our nation’s military service academies for students between the ages of 17 and 23 who live in California’s Fifth Congressional District, it was announced. These schools include the United States Air Force Academy, United States Merchant Marine Academy, United States Military Academy at West Point, and the United States Naval Academy.

“Each year, it’s my distinct honor to be a part of selecting our nation’s next class of military leadership and hear the stories of the exceptional candidates who call our district home. I’m excited to announce that my office is now accepting applications for next year’s selection process!” Thompson said. “All interested young men and women from our district should consider applying and I am deeply proud of all those who commit to serving our nation in uniform.”

Students can apply for the 2020 cycle and must complete their submission by Monday, Oct. 14. Interviews of qualified candidates will then be held in November and nominations will be submitted to academies for review in December.
