Congressman Jim Matheson, 4th Congressional District of Utah Dear Friend, It�s Back to School time. As students and parents discuss their hopes and plans for this academic year, I want to tell you about a unique educational opportunity to develop physically, ethically and intellectually while building a foundation for a rewarding and challenging career in the service of our country. One of my favorite duties as a Member of Congress is nominating Utah�s best and brightest young men and women to our nation�s service academies. These schools are the U.S. Military Academy at West Point [link 1], the U.S. Naval Academy [link 2], the U.S. Air Force Academy [link 3] and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy. [link 4] These institutions prepare college-age Americans to be officers of the United States uniformed services. Members of Congress are authorized by law to nominate candidates for appointment; the criteria for application are set by statute and by policies established by each academy. Applicant qualifications include: - �American citizenship - At least 17 years of age and not yet 23 years of age on July 1st of the year the applicant would enter the academy - Unmarried - Not pregnant and without legal obligation to support children or other dependents.
