Congressman Andy Barr (KY-06) will host his annual Academy Day on Saturday, August 27, 2016 in Lexington. All students, parents, and school officials from the Sixth Congressional District are invited to attend and learn more about the nomination process to the United States Service Academies. Representatives from the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Military Academy, the U.S. Air Force Academy, the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, and the University of Kentucky Army and Air Force ROTC programs have been invited to participate.
Members of Congress may nominate a limited number of students each year to four of the five service academies. After nominations are submitted, each Service Academy selects which students will receive an appointment to attend. 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.
