Congressman Lee Zeldin Hosts Service Academy Information Day
Farmingville, NY – On Saturday, June 13, 2015, Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, C – Shirley) hosted his first annual Service Academy Information Day at Brookhaven Town Hall for prospective students and their families to speak with representatives from Service Academies across the United States.
Representatives from all the five service academies were in attendance to provide more information on their respective academy and answer any questions that attendees may have had.
Members of Congress may nominate candidates for appointment to four of the five U.S. service academies: U.S. Military Academy (USMA), West Point, NY; the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA), Annapolis, MD; the U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA), Colorado Springs, CO; and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA), Kings Point, NY. The fifth service academy, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy (USCGA), New London, CT, does not require a congressional nomination for appointment.
