Yesterday, Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) hosted over one hundred attendees at his second of two Fifth District Service Academy Nights for high school students interested in attending one of our country’s five military academies.
The event, hosted at Ridgewood High School, included representatives from the U.S. Military Academy, U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, and both the Navy and Marine Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC).
“Here in the United States, we have the best trained, most sophisticated, and best equipped military in the history of the world,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5). “I am proud to see so many incredible men and women who are eager to pick up the mantle of world leadership in our country’s military by applying to our prestigious military academies. The spirit of duty and patriotism that called these Fifth District high school students to service is inspiring, and my office is here to help them throughout their application.”
Earlier this month, Congressman Gottheimer hosted his first Service Academy Night at Newton High School in Newton. The deadline to apply for an academy nomination is November 9th.
