Lugar to Host 10th Annual Youth Academy Days

(April 12, 2011) – U.S. Sen. Dick Lugar will host the 10th Annual Youth Academy Days this spring. The events provide information to high school sophomores and juniors about attending military academies.

Representatives from the Army, Navy, Air Force, Merchant Marine, and Coast Guard Academies will attend each event. Students also can receive information about ROTC programs and Indiana National Guard opportunities.

“The United States military academies offer students a highly regarded education and the opportunity to serve to their country, a combination that many young Hoosiers seek,” Lugar said. “For the 10th year, these Academy Days will offer a thorough overview about the process of applying for nominations.”

The 10th Annual Youth Academy Days will take place at the following locations:

A U.S. Senator, Congressman or the Vice President of the United States can nominate students interested in attending a military academy. Each year since his election to the Senate in 1976, Lugar has used the services of a nonpartisan Merit Selection Committee to review the applications he receives. Lugar then uses those recommendations as the basis for his academy nominations.
