Military Academy Nominations

One of the great privileges and responsibilities of being a Member of Congress is the ability to nominate talented young Rhode Islanders to the U.S. Service Academies – the United States Military Academy at West Point, the United States Naval Academy, the United States Air Force Academy, and the United States Merchant Marine Academy.* If you are a resident of the 2nd Congressional District and between the ages of 17 and 23, I invite you to apply for a nomination from my office. Applications for matriculation in July of 2016 will be due November 2, 2015.

*The United States Coast Guard Academy does not accept congressional nominations; however, if you are interested in serving in the Coast Guard, I encourge you to reach out to my office for any assistance you may need.

All correspondence and telephone inquires regarding the Service Academies can be directed to:

Ryan Sherry
Office of Congressman James R. Langevin
300 Centerville Rd., Ste 200 South
Warwick, RI 02886
(401) 732-9400
