Palmer Announces 2024 U.S. Service Academy Nominations

Birmingham, AL – Each December, Representative Gary Palmer (AL-06) partners with his Academy Advisory Board to nominate outstanding students from Alabama's Sixth Congressional District for an appointment to our nation's service academies. U.S. Service Academy recruiters laud the level of preparedness and exceptional achievements of cadets from this district. Students who are accepted as cadets and midshipmen will be receiving the highest levels of education, athletic conditioning, leadership building, and training to defend the Constitution and America's freedoms alongside an extensive network of academy alumni.

The application process for most U.S. Service Academies involves receiving a nomination from their U.S. House Representative, U.S. Senator, the Vice President or the President. These academies include: the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, NY; U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, CO; U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD; and U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, NY. Once the nomination is confirmed, the academy will review the whole candidate for enrollment consideration. Students who enroll become scholar soldiers, joining among the most prestigious traditions in America.

This year, 12 students received congressional nominations from Rep. Palmer. Following their nomination, Rep. Palmer released the following statement:

"I want the best that we have to offer for our military, and these students are just that," said Rep. Palmer. "Nominating students to the U.S. Service Academies is one of the most important aspects of my job. Our process is tough because these are the future leaders of our military, and we want them to be prepared to possibly lead future generations into combat. I believe Alabama's Sixth District has some of the brightest young people in the state and country and am delighted these students have expressed their desire to serve our country."
