• Congressman Panetta Accepting Applications for Service Academy Nominations

    Applications due October 26, 2018
    Congressman Jimmy Panetta (CA-20) announced that his office will be accepting applications for service academy nominations. Candidates interested in attending one of four U.S. service academies, including the U.S. Military Academy, U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy, or U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, must submit applications and other necessary documents by Friday, October 26, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. PST.
    “As a U.S. Representative, I have the privilege of nominating young people from our communities to our nation’s military academies,” said Congressman Panetta. “I commend the candidates for their pursuit of service to our country, and I look forward to assisting them in any way that I can.”

    Students interested in being considered for a nomination by Congressman Panetta must have already filed an application for admission to their service academy or academies of choice, as well as submit an application to Congressman Panetta’s office. Applications include an essay, a resume, official SAT and/or ACT scores, official high school transcripts, official college transcripts (if applicable), three letters of recommendation, and a current photograph. Congressman Panetta may nominate up to ten individuals for each vacant academy slot allotted to California’s 20th Congressional District. The fifth service academy, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy (USCGA), does not require a congressional nomination for appointment. Students seeking appointment to a service academy must first obtain the nomination of their U.S. Representative, their U.S. Senator, or the Vice President. A nomination does not guarantee appointment to an academy.
    Those interested in applying to a military service academy can find more information on Congressman Panetta’s website, or by calling the Salinas District Office at 831-424-2229.
