Lucas to Nominate

Third-District Congressman Frank Lucas wants to hear from students who want to attend one of the nation’s service academies. The four academies that require a congressional nomination include the Air Force Academy, the Merchant Marine Academy, the Military Academy at West Point, and the Naval Academy. The fifth service academy, the U. S. Coast Guard Academy does not require a Congressional nomination. Prospective students need to be between the ages of 17 and 23, a U. S. citizen at the time you enter the academy, unmarried with no legal obligation to support a child or dependent, and a legal resident of Lucas’s Third Congressional District. Application deadline is October 31st and personal interviews with the Congressman will be held November 19th. If you have questions about the nomination process call Lucas’s office at (405) 373-1958.
