  • Congressman John Carney announced today the names of the students whom he has nominated for the United States Air Force Academy, the United States Naval Academy, the United States Military Academy, and the United States Merchant Marine Academy. Nominations for the service academies are made annually by the Congressman, and those chosen represent future Delaware leaders who have already made strong commitments to community service and academic excellence.
    “It’s a tremendous privilege to nominate these wonderful young Delawareans to attend our nation’s service academies,” Carney said. “These nominations are the culmination of years of hard work and effort both in school and out of school. I hope each person nominated, as well as their families, friends, and communities are very proud of their accomplishments. I am confident that if offered an appointment, each one will represent Delaware with honor and distinction while in school and throughout a career in our nation’s armed forces.”
    In order to be granted admission, an applicant must meet all eligibility requirements and receive a nomination from a Member of the House or Senate, the Vice President, or the Secretary of the Air Force, Army, or Navy. The decision whether or not to appoint a nominee rests solely with each academy.
