WASHINGTON, D.C.– Senator Daines today announced multiple Military Academy Days for students across the state. Each year, along with Senator Jon Tester, Congressmen Ryan Zinke and Matt Rosendale, Daines hosts Military Academy Days for high school students and their parents to learn more about the Service Academy nomination process and speak to representatives from the five institutions – the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, the U.S. Military Academy and the U.S. Air Force Academy.
“As a son of Marine, I hold members of the United States Armed Forces in the highest esteem. I consider it an honor and a privilege to nominate outstanding young Montanans to compete for an appointment to the United States Service Academies, and I am excited to announce 2023 Academy Days for our students to learn more about the nomination process,” Daines said.
All students interested in attending military service academies must first receive a nomination from a member of their state’s Congressional delegation. Students will have the opportunity to discuss best practices for the nomination process and ask questions about their eligibility.
