Congressman F. James Sensenbrenner, Jr. (R-Menomonee Falls) reminds those who are interested in attending the United States Naval, Military, Air Force, or Merchant Marine Academies that his nomination application deadline is October 15, 2014. 

Eligible individuals must be legal U.S. citizens; live within Wisconsin’s Fifth Congressional District; and be at least 17 years old, but not past their 23rd birthday as of July 1, 2015.  Once the deadline has passed, a member of the Congressman’s Academy Selection Committee will interview the applicant, and make nomination recommendations to the Congressman based on the applicant’s ability to meet the academic and physical standards set by the Academies.

“I will accept applications for a nomination to the U.S. Service Academies through close of business on Wednesday, October 15, 2014.  Late or incomplete applications will not be accepted,” said Sensenbrenner.  “I encourage students to contact the Academies they are interested in to open a candidate file, and then follow up with my office in Brookfield to make me aware of their interest in a nomination.”

Information about the nomination process can be obtained by contacting Congressman Sensenbrenner’s District Office at 120 Bishops Way, Room 154, Brookfield, WI 53005, or by phone at (262) 784-1111.
