The application process to request a nomination from Congressman to enter a Service Academy in the summer of 2019 is now closed. 

Since 2006, it has been my privilege to nominate young men and women  from the 2nd Congressional District to the U.S. Air Force Academy, the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, the U.S. Military Academy and the U.S. Naval Academy. I will soon be submitting my final slates of nominees to the Academies. I wish them the best of luck.

Success Stories

Greggrie O’Garro

Greggrie O’Garro received my nomination to the United States Naval Academy in 2011. On the 27th he will be commissioned, serving as a surface warfare officer. His future plans included serving as a chaplain after his commitment is fulfilled. At the service academy, I noticed that he was a leader among his classmates. I am very proud of him and know that he will represent the United States and Texas well. Congratulations on your graduation Greggrie!
