Lubbock’s congressman is reminding students that the deadline to apply for military academies is approaching.

Congressman Randy Neugebauer reminds some students that the deadline to submit applications for military academy nominations to his office is November 15th.

“As a Member of Congress, I am proud to nominate outstanding young candidates from the 19th District of Texas to four U.S. service academies: the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Air Force Academy, and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy. These institutions prepare college-age Americans to be officers of the United States uniformed services,” said Neugebauer.

The nominations are open to high school seniors. Anyone interested is urged to contact Mary Whistler in Neugebauer’s Lubbock office at 888-763-1611.
