Gillibrand Nominates Students from Long Island for Service Academies

 

GILLIBRAND ANNOUNCES 2019 SERVICE ACADEMY NOMINATIONS FROM LONG ISLAND

Gillibrand Nominates Twelve Students from Long Island for Service Academies

Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, today announced her nominations for candidates from Long Island to the United States Merchant Marine, Air Force, Military, and Naval Academies.

“I am honored to nominate such dedicated and talented students from Long Island to our nation’s service academies. They have demonstrated exemplary leadership abilities and an outstanding academic record, as well as a passion to serve our nation,” said Senator Gillibrand. “Our service academies cultivate top-tier officers who bravely protect our nation, and I look forward to these nominees’ successes as they further their education and continue their commitment to our country in the armed forces.”

A selection committee formed by Senator Gillibrand chose the nominees from a large group of qualified applicants. Decisions were based on criteria including academic record, leadership potential, and overall achievement. Final acceptance is determined solely by the service academies.

The United States service academies offer a first-class education as well as the chance for young people to serve our country upon graduation as commissioned officers in the United States Armed Services.
