Service Academy Nominations


Thank you for your interest in the U.S. Service Academies. As your 26th District Representative in the U.S. House of Representatives, each year I have the privilege of nominating a limited number of people to four of the five service academies. The honor of attending a service academy comes with an obligation and commitment to serve in the military for a minimum of five years upon graduation. For more information, please review my page of Frequently Asked Questions for those seeking a Service Academy Nomination. Best wishes to you as you pursue your goal of attending one of the U.S. Service Academies and serving our country.

To request a Service Academy Nomination from my office, please complete the form below.

Please contact Megan Corbett in our Buffalo office at 716-852-3501 or with any additional questions or concerns.

Academy Information

Indicate all Service Academies to which you are seeking a nomination by ranking them in order of preference, 1-4, with 1 being your highest preference. Any for which you are not seeking nomination, leave preference unselected.


An appointment to the Service Academies is based on a desire by the candidate to devote a lifetime of military service and implies recognition by the appointee of an obligation to the government to devote him / herself to a military career. Are you interested in an appointment on that basis?
