Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack announced today that he will be hosting an U.S. Service Academy Day on SATURDAY, April 14th at the Bettendorf Library. At the Service Academy Day, the Navy, Air Force and Army, along with University of Iowa’s Army ROTC and Air Force ROTC, will have representatives available to meet with students and their families about enrolling and attending a Service Academy. The representatives will also be able to discuss what it is like to attend a Service Academy, how to apply and best practices for getting accepted. Students, parents/guardians, and media are invited to attend.

Each year, Congressman Loebsack may nominate up to five Iowans for each Academy, with the final selection for admission made by the individual Academy. Our nation’s Service Academies offer educational opportunities for young people interested in military service. Students can specialize in a variety of fields at the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, the Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs and the Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point.
