MONROE, Ga. - Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10), in coordination with Senator Johnny Isakson and the entire Georgia Congressional Delegation, invites students to attend the annual statewide U.S. Military Service Academy Day on Saturday, April 27 at Dobbins Air Reserve Base. The event, which is the largest of its kind in the Nation, is designed to familiarize students with the application and nomination processes for applying to each of the military service academies.
“Our service academies are some of the Nation’s most selective colleges,” Hice said. “Yet each year, I am privileged to congratulate 10th District students who receive appointments to these prestigious institutions. If you have a desire to serve as a commissioned officer in the United States Armed Forces and a competitive record of achievement, I encourage you to attend this important event, which brings together representatives from the United States Air Force, Naval, Military, Coast Guard, and Merchant Marine Academies.”
The Military Service Academy Day is free and open to students in grades eight through twelve. The event will take place from 10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. at Dobbins Air Reserve Base located at 1408 Dobbins Place, Dobbins ARB, Marietta, GA 30069. Guests may arrive as early as 8:45 a.m. to clear security and visit information tables. Due to the restrictions at Dobbins Air Reserve Base, all who plan to attend must register online by Tuesday, April 16 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.
Students who are unable to attend may visit Congressman Hice’s website for more information about academy nominations.
