Daines Congratulates Two Montana Students on West Point Academy Appointment

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator Steve Daines today congratulated two distinguished Montana students, Zach Giesecke and Nicholas Loos, for their appointments to the United States Military Academy at West Point.

Giesecke, from Greycliff, MT, received a nomination to West Point from Senator Daines and was also nominated by Senator Jon Tester and former Senator John Walsh. Giesecke is a student at Bozeman High School and has been active in football, lacrosse, wrestling and choir. He has previously attended the West Point Summer Leadership Seminar.

Loos, whose family is from Lewistown, MT, received a nomination to the academy by Walsh and Tester. Loos is currently a West Point Association of Graduates Sponsored Cadet at the Marion Military Institute in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.

“It is my honor to congratulate these two incredibly hardworking students for their appointments to the prestigious and distinguished United States Military Academy,” Daines stated. “Zach and Nicholas are both proven leaders inside and outside of the classroom and I look forward to watching them honor Montana through their future service to our great state and nation.”
