    Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-WA) announced that he has nominated two students from the Yakima Valley for consideration to attend U.S. military academies.

    The academies include West Point, the Naval Academy, and the Air Force Academy.

    “Every year, I have the honor of nominating students from Central Washington to attend one of our nation’s prestigious Military Service Academies,” said Rep. Newhouse.

    The nominations followed an interview process that included Rep. Newhouse’s military academy advisory board.

    The military academies will then have the final say if the nominees are admitted.

    The honor of attending a service academy comes with the obligation and commitment to serve in the military for a minimum of five years upon graduation.

    Newhouse added, “I am always impressed by the academic success and personal accomplishments of the young people who strive to serve our country. I am grateful for my nomination board that helped to review applicants, and I am very proud of the nominees we have recommended. I wish them the best of luck as they continue through the application process.”
