The Military and Education
MILITARY CAREER AND THE MILITARY ACADEMIES
"For any student interested in a military career, the education offered by our nation’s military academies is one of the finest in the country, if not the finest, and an appointment means that the student will have his or her college years completely paid for….The military academies have rigorous athletic programs, demanding academics, and emphasize basic military skills, history, and engineering. Those who meet the academy challenge will receive a Bachelors of Science, a commission in their chosen branch of service, and unparalleled training in leadership and teamwork." --Earl Blumenauer, Member of Congress
Prospective candidates must contact their representative in the Congress to get an application packet and must also contact the preferred academy for their application packet as well.
