Senator Sherrod Brown seeking military applications

Chronicle Telegram – U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown is encouraging Ohioans to seek nomination from his office to U.S. military service academies for 2011 admission.

Each year, Brown, D-Avon, nominates up to 10 students for each service academy: the U.S. Air Force Academy, the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and the Merchant Marine Academy.

“Ohio’s high school seniors have the integrity, courage, and knowledge needed to enroll in our nation’s prestigious military academies and I am honored to nominate students for this high honor,” Brown said in a statement. “These academies develop the next generation of leaders who will serve our country as military officers and national leaders.”

Student applicants are reviewed by a committee of active and retired military and community leaders appointed by Brown. Selected students are provided with the required congressional recommendation upon applying for admission.

Interested students who meet the eligibility requirements should send their completed application packet to Brown’s Cleveland office no later than Sept. 26. The application process is time-intensive. Applicants should plan well in advance.

For more information or to request an application, please visit Brown’s website at brown.senate.gov or contact Brown’s academy coordinator at the Cleveland office at (888) 896-6446.
