Military Academy Nominations

               Thank you for your interest in the U.S. Military Service Academies. As your Representative in Congress for the 16th District of Illinois, I have the privilege each year of nominating a limited number of outstanding individuals to be considered for appointment. Please follow the link to find the full application form, as well as pertinent information necessary for its completion.

                U.S. Military Service Academies offer excellent educational and technical training courses. Each academy has its own unique time-honored traditions and proud history. Our distinguished military colleges present an exceptional opportunity to fulfill your career goals and enhance the skills necessary to become a successful individual with an emphasis on leadership. Please consider all that each military school has to offer. While your first choice is taken into consideration, you may further your opportunity for a nomination by selecting more than one academy. Now that you have initiated the nomination process with my office, please be certain to apply directly with the academies in which you are interested.

                As a current member of the Armed Forces, I take the responsibility of my selections most seriously. An appointment to a U.S. Military Service Academy is an extraordinary honor which requires a dedicated commitment to learn and profound commitment to serve. I consider it a privilege to be able to recommend nominees for a potential appointment to these great institutions. I salute your ambitions aspirations and wish you the very best of success in achieving your goal.

                Should you have any questions regarding the application or my nominations selection process, please contact my Military Academy Coordinator, Luke Phalen, at (815) 431-9271 or at Luke.Phalen@Mail.House.Gov.
