To be considered for a nomination, candidates should have a strong academic background, participation in school and community activities, a high standard of physical fitness, and a desire to be challenged.

“One of my most important responsibilities as a Member of Congress is nominating the best and brightest young men and women to our nation’s service academies,” said Rep.
