The office of U.S. Senator Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) is accepting applications for service academy nominations for appointment to four of the five U.S. service academies: the U.S. Military Academy, U.S Naval Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy, and U.S. Merchant Marine Academy. The fifth service academy, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, does not require a congressional nomination for appointment.
The deadline to apply for a nomination is Friday, October 13th, 2023. Mullin released the following statement regarding this years’ nomination process:
“The decision to apply to a service academy is an incredibly personal and courageous one, and I am humbled to be a part of the process,” said Sen. Mullin. “No matter the branch, rank, or role, each of our men and women in uniform play an important part in maintaining our national security and defending our way of life. I encourage Oklahoma’s qualified high school seniors to consider if this path is right for you. I wish you all the best of luck in the process, and I look forward to reviewing your applications.”
