Duluth, GA — Today, Rep. Lucy McBath (GA-07) announced that her office is now accepting applications for Military Service Academy nominations for the class of 2029. As a member of Congress, McBath may nominate up to ten individuals for each vacant academy slot allotted to Georgia’s Seventh Congressional District. Members of Congress may nominate candidates for appointment to four of the five U.S. service academies: U.S. Military Academy in West Point, NY; the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD; the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, CO; and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, NY. The fifth service academy, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, CT, does not require a congressional nomination for appointment.

“I want every student who is interested in an appointment to a United States military service academy to know how very proud I am of their desire to serve our nation,” McBath said. “As my office prepares to accept this year’s applications, I am privileged to play a role in nominating men and women from our community who represent the next generation of military leadership in America.”

The deadline to submit applications is no later than 11:59 pm on Sunday, October 13th, 2024. Applications must be submitted by students using the form at mcbath.house.gov/military-academy-nominations. If any student or their family has questions, please contact our office by calling 470-773-6330 or emailing serviceacademies.mcbath@mail.house.gov.
