The people's voice of reason


Now, as a U.S. Senator, I have the honor of nominating qualified candidates each year for an appointment to a United States Service Academy.

It is no small step to pursue a nomination to a United States Service Academy, but it is an opportunity to be a part of the next generation of American leaders and join the ranks of great men and women who came before you.

My office is accepting applications from Alabama students who are seeking a nomination to the United States Naval Academy, Air Force Academy, Merchant Marine Academy, or the Military Academy at West Point for the class entering in July of 2024.

Please remember that in order to be eligible for a nomination each candidate must meet the following criteria:

• Be a United States Citizen at the time he or she enters the Service Academy, and a legal resident of Alabama;

• Be at least 17 years of age, but not yet 23 by July 1st of the year he or she is admitted to the Service Academy (the upper age limit is 25 for Merchant Marine Academy);

• Meet the minimum requirements of the Academy to which he or she is applying.

More information can be found at:

U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville's (R-AL) team hosted another U.S. Service Academy information session in Homewood this week in conjunction with the offices of U.S. Senator Katie Britt, Congresswoman Terri Sewell, and Congressman GaryPalmer.

During the session, students and parents heard about each office's application process from congressional staff and met with service academy representatives.

Senator Tuberville will be partnering with Senator Britt and the Alabama

delegation to host more information sessions during the month of August with remaining stops in Troy, Montgomery, and Opelika.
