Wittman hosts virtual Service Academy Day information session during COVID-19 pandemic

Rob WittmanCongressman Rob Wittman hosted a virtual Academy Day for students across Virginia’s First Congressional District who are interested in attending one of the five United States Service Academies: United States Military Academy at West Point, United States Naval Academy, United States Air Force Academy, United States Merchant Marine Academy, and the United States Coast Guard Academy.

“Our nation’s youth are our future,” said Wittman, R-Va. “And I applaud all students across our area and throughout the country who are interested in serving our nation through attending one of our premier service academies. My goal for students in our region is to promote enrollment, employment, and enlistment. Enrollment in higher education, employment in fulfilling careers, or enlistment in the United States military. It is an honor to host these informational seminars each year, and I am proud we are still able to provide this opportunity even in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. I will continue to work to provide opportunities to young people in VA-01, and look forward to receiving this year’s applications to the five service academies.”
