Washington, DC – Rep. Bruce Braley (D-Iowa) announced today that Ben Wolf of Clinton received an appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy.  Wolf will enter the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, this fall. 

“I’m proud to announce Ben Wolf’s acceptance to the U.S. Naval Academy,” Braley said.  “With his exceptional character and history of community service, Ben will be a valuable addition to the Naval Academy.  I’m happy that Ben will have the opportunity to further his education while continuing to serve his country at Navy.” 

Ben Wolf will graduate from Camanche High School this May. Ben is the son of Michael and Margaret Wolf.

Each year Congressman Braley nominates students to the military service academies, including the U.S. Naval Academy.  Nominees must demonstrate upstanding character, academic achievement, physical fitness, and leadership skills.  A nominating committee comprised of community leaders reviews all applicants, with Congressman Braley recommending top candidates to the respective academies.  Final acceptance decisions are made by the service academy.

Students interested in applying to military service academies for enrollment in fall of 2010 should contact Congressman Braley’s Waterloo office at (319) 287-3233.
