Service Academy Nominations

Thank you for your interest in the U.S. service academies. As your First District representative in the U.S. House, each year I have the privilege of nominating a limited number of people to four of the five service academies. The honor of attending a service academy comes with an obligation and commitment to serve in the military for a minimum of five years upon graduation.

Please fill out the preliminary online application below to start the  process.  The Academy Application data packet sheet (PDF copy below) should be downloaded and filled out completely and returned to Congressman Wittman's office in Mechanicsville. The mailing address is contained on the application.  In addition, in the Academy Application packet you will find an application procedure check list for assistance.   The entire application packet is due the last day of October.  

Best wishes to you as you pursue your goal of attending one of the U.S. service academies and serving our country.

Please join me for our annual Service Academy Day June 16th at 10am. Due to COVID-19, this event will be via zoom video conference. 

If you are interested in learning more about the Service Academy nomination process, I encourage you to participate in this call. There will be a PowerPoint presentation so using a video supporting device is encouraged. Due to limited conference slots, we ask that members of the same household use just one device.
