Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10), in coordination with Senators Johnny Isakson and David Perdue and the Georgia Congressional Delegation, invites students to attend Military Service Academy Day on Saturday, April 29th at Dobbins Air Reserve Base. The event, which is the largest in the Nation of its kind, is designed to familiarize students with the application and nomination process for applying to each of the military service academies.
“Our Nation’s service academies have a long tradition of developing tomorrow’s leaders,” Hice said. “This annual Service Academy Day is a can’t-miss event for those hoping to attend the U.S. Military, Naval, Air Force, Merchant Marine, or Coast Guard Academies. These fine institutions provide students with a first-rate education and train them to become commissioned officers for the United States Armed Forces. I encourage students to learn more about this exceptional opportunity and speak to representatives about their academy admission requirements.”
The Military Service Academy Day is free and open to students in grades eight through twelve. The event will take place from 10-11:30 a.m. at Dobbins Air Reserve Base located at 1408 Dobbins Place, Dobbins ARB, Marietta, GA 30069. Guests should arrive as early as 9 a.m. to clear security and to visit information tables. Due to the restrictions at Dobbins Air Reserve Base, all who plan to attend must register online no later than Monday, April 17 at 5 p.m. Each person, including parents, who will attend Academy Day must register due to the requirements for entry onto the military base.
