U.S. Congressman Bill Enyart, D-Belleville, is accepting applications that could lead to appointments to one of the U.S. military academies.
“Our nation’s military academies prepare young men and women for a rewarding career in the service of their country as well as providing an excellent education,” said Enyart. “With the deadline of Nov. 14 approaching, I encourage any student interested in an academy appointment to contact my office soon for an application packet and further information.”
To be eligible for a Congressional appointment to a U.S. Military Academy, students must be at least 17 and not more than 23 years of age, unmarried, have no child support obligations, and be a legal resident of the 12th Congressional District of Illinois.
Students may apply to the U.S. Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs, Colorado; U.S. Military Academy at West Point, New York; U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, Maryland, or the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point, New York.
Anyone interested in applying for admission to one of the academies should write or call for an application packet to:
