Congressman Dave Loebsack’s office is accepting applications for nomination to the U.S. Service Academies for the class entering in the fall of 2014. 

Loebsack is able to nominate 10 Iowans for each academy, with the final selection for admission made by the individual academy from that group.  

“As a military parent with kids who attended the Naval Academy, this process is very personal to me,” Loebsack said. “I look forward to nominating our future leaders and encourage all interested students to apply.”

The United States Service Academies offer educational opportunities for young people interested in military service.  Students can specialize in a variety of fields at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, the Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs or the Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point.

Additional information on the selection process can be found at www.Loebsack.house.gov. Contact Katie Kluever, Loebsack’s academy coordinator, at (563) 323-5988 or katie.kluever@mail.house.gov with any questions.
