The Idaho Congressional Delegation announced its 2017 Service Academy Days across Idaho. Each Service Academy Day session offers students, parents, and counselors the opportunity to meet with liaisons, cadets, and midshipmen from each of the nation’s respective service academies and provides an opportunity for questions.
In North Idaho, Service Academy Day will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, March 9, in the Edminster Student Union Building at North Idaho College, 495 College Drive, Coeur d’Alene.
Staff from Idaho’s four Congressional delegation offices will be on hand to answer questions about the application process for students who are seeking a nomination to our service academies.
This year, the United States Military Academy at West Point; the U.S. Naval Academy; the U.S. Air Force Academy, and; the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy will all be represented at each event. While a Congressional nomination is not needed to attend the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, representatives will also be in attendance.
Students who wish to learn more about applying for a military academy nomination but are unable to attend one of the Academy Day events are invited to contact any of the following Academy coordinators for information:
Senator Mike Crapo
Senator Jim Risch
Congressman Mike Simpson
Congressman Raul Labrador
