Congressman Greg Gianforte has announced his nominations for students applying for enrollment into the U.S. military academies.
It is a tremendous honor to nominate these dedicated young individuals for appointment to a U.S. service academy,” said Gianforte. “They have demonstrated a high commitment to personal excellence and principled public service. I am confident they possess the necessary qualities needed to successfully graduate from a service academy, and equally confident in their abilities to meet the rigorous challenges as future officers in our armed forces.”
A service academy nomination from the Congressman meets an admittance requirement for Montanans seeking officer training in one of one of the nation’s four military academies. They are the Military Academy at West Point, NY, the Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs, CO, the Naval Academy at Annapolis, and the Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point, NY. 
Students applying through Gianforte’s congressional office for a nomination have completed an extensive application process, examined their academic, civic and physical abilities and their commitment to military service.
