WASHINGTON, DC—Congressman Jim Himes (CT-4) today reminded students applying for 2010 admission into one of the nation’s four military academies that applications are due to his office by 4:00pm on Friday, October 30th. Applications are available on the Congressman’s website and from high school guidance counselors throughout the 4th District.

“I’m honored to play a part in nominating young men and women to our country’s prestigious military academies,” said Congressman Himes. “Attending a military academy is an incredible but challenging opportunity. I look forward to meeting the young leaders who will make this impressive commitment to serving our country.”

A panel of judges will review applications and conduct interviews with candidates in early December. Applicants must have turned 17 but not yet reached their 23rd birthday on July 1, 2010 and live in the 4th Congressional district.
