Ulster County, NY – On December 3rd, Congressman John Faso (R-Kinderhook) met with the advisory board tasked with selecting the New York 19th congressional office's service academy nominations for admission in June 2018. The advisory board is made up of people who have either graduated from a military service academy, have a family connection to a military academy, or have otherwise served in the military.
“The advisory board will play a critical role in selecting candidates to receive recommendations to our nation’s service academies,” said Faso. “The crop of students up for consideration are exemplary candidates, and I am looking forward to submitting recommendations on their behalf. Our service academies have produced some of our nation's finest leaders both in and out of the military, and I am proud that there is such great interest from local students who want to serve our nation.”
The advisory board has made their recommendations and those recommendations are in the process of being made to the respective service academies.
