Gwen Graham Announces 2016 Military Academy Days

August 12, 2016 
Press Release
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Representative Gwen Graham is inviting North Florida students interested in attending our nation’s military academies to Military Academy Days to learn more about the schools and application process. The Military Academy Days will be held in Panama City on August 23 and in Tallahassee on August 25.
“There is no greater honor than serving in our nation’s military,” Rep. Graham said. “Our military academies educate and train the smartest service members in the world. I encourage all students in North Florida to attend the Military Academy Days and learn more about these exceptional schools.”
The five military academies are the United States Military Academy at West Point; the United States Coast Guard Academy at New London; the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis; the United States Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point; and the United States Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs. Students aspiring to attend a military academy must receive a nomination from their representative, senator or by applying directly to the vice president (with the exception of the Coast Guard Academy). Last year, Rep. Graham nominated 11 students from North Florida to attend the academies.
Rep. Graham will attend both Academy Days to speak with students about the importance of serving in our military, and representatives from the academies will be on hand with more information about the schools.
Students interested in learning more or requesting an academy nomination can also visit, and we encourage your outlets to publish the attached informational flyer.
