Press Release

MARTINSBURG – Congressman Alex X. Mooney (WV-02) today announced that twenty-four students from West Virginia’s Second Congressional District have been nominated to U.S. service academies. The honor of attending a service academy comes with the obligation and commitment to serve in the military for a minimum of five years upon graduation. Congressman Mooney acknowledged this great honor today in the following statement:

“Our incredible military academy nominees have been selected based on their academic achievements, extra-curricular activities, leadership skills, physical aptitude, character and motivation. It always makes me very proud to see so many incredible students from West Virginia’s Second Congressional District apply for this life-changing opportunity. In our country today, we need driven and patriotic young Americans, like our nominees, to faithfully serve and defend our freedoms,” said Congressman Alex Mooney.

Members of Congress may nominate candidates for appointment to four of the five U.S. service academies:

  • U.S. Military Academy (USMA), West Point, NY

  • U.S. Naval Academy (USNA), Annapolis, MD

  • U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA), Colorado Springs, CO
