Brown Announces Nomination Of 50 Ohioans To U.S. Military Service Academies

Nominees Include Students from 35 Counties for West Point, Merchant Marine, Air Force, and Naval Academies

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Fifty Ohioans are being nominated to attend U.S. Military Service Academies. U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) today announced his nomination of students from 35 counties. A full list of Ohio nominees is below.

“Ohio schools are training leaders for the next generation of military personnel. I am honored to nominate these outstanding students for our prestigious U.S. Military Service Academies,” said Brown.  “These Ohioans embody the integrity and courage needed to represent well and uphold the values of our nation. I am grateful for their dedication to serving our country.”

Each year, Brown nominates up to 20 students for each service academy requiring congressional recommendations, including: the Air Force Academy; the Naval Academy; the Military Academy at West Point; and the Merchant Marine Academy.  This year, two openings were available at the Air Force Academy, so Brown nominated 20 students to that institution. 

The nominations are based on the recommendation of a Service Academy Selection Advisory Committee assembled by Brown. This committee, comprised of former academy graduates, parents of academy attendees, and community leaders from throughout the state, conducted rigorous interviews before selecting the final candidates.

Brown used the Competitive Nominations Process and nominated 10 candidates for each academy slot available. A nomination does not guarantee acceptance into a service academy. The Academy’s Admissions Board ultimately decides who receives an appointment.
