Congressman Rick Allen recently hosted a signing ceremony for the four students accepted into U.S. Service Academies.
Allen issued the following statement after hosting a Service Academy Signing Ceremony this week for three young men (one was not in attendance) from Georgia’s 12th district who received and accepted an offer of appointment to one of our nation’s Military Service Academies.
Each year, Congressman Allen nominates a limited number of young people to attend four of our nation’s five Service Academies. Accepting an appointment obligates the appointees to commit and serve in the military for a minimum of five years upon graduation from the academy.
“Knowing that we have such exceptional young adults in the 12th District of Georgia who are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for their country gives me great hope for the future of America,” said Congressman Allen. “Today, I had the opportunity to recognize three of them – Nathan, Logan, and Michael – who, throughout their lives, have gone above and beyond to become valued leaders among their peers. It is with much admiration that I congratulate each of them for their many triumphs and I was proud to do my part to support them as they begin this next chapter in their lives.”
