U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., announced the annual statewide U.S. Military Service Academy Day will be held April 27, at Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Marietta.
This event is designed to help students with the application and nomination process for our nation’s five military service academies.
Military Service Academy Day brings hundreds of students from across the state in grades eight through 12 and their parents. Due to Dobbins Air Reserve Base security restrictions, all attendees must register by April 16 at 5 p.m. to be admitted to attend the event.
“I am excited to once again host this special opportunity for Georgia students who are interested in pursuing a nomination to our nation’s service academies to hear directly from the experts,” said Sen. Isakson. “When students hear from representatives from each academy, they are better prepared to apply for their desired academy or learn more about other academies. Students often leave with a new appreciation for applying to more than one academy to benefit their future plans.”
Among the members of the Georgia congressional delegation who are currently scheduled to participate are U.S. Representatives Barry Loudermilk, R-Ga.-11, and Rob Woodall, R-Ga.-07.
During the program, students will see presentations of requirements and expectations for admittance from representatives from all five academies, including admissions directors from the U.S. Air Force Academy, the U.S. Military Academy and the U.S. Naval Academy, an admissions officer from the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, and the deputy director of the U.S. Department of Defense’s Medical Examinations Review Board.
Guests may arrive as early as at 8:45 a.m. Photo identification will be required for admittance at the main gate.
Each individual who is interested in attending must register in advance through Isakson’s website at https://www.isakson.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/service-academies by Tuesday, April 16 at 5 p.m.
