Congressman Hensarling Accepting Service Academy Nomination Requests

DALLASU.S. Congressman Jeb Hensarling (TX-05) announced today that his office is now accepting service academy nomination requests. 

“It is a privilege to consider candidates’ applications for a nomination to one of the United States service academies,” said Hensarling. “With many talented students applying through my office for a limited number of vacancies, the competition has always been very intense.”

Candidates interested in attending a military service academy must undergo a rigorous selection process and receive a nomination from a Member of Congress, the Vice President, or from the Department of Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine Corps.  These nominations are determined based on academic performance, college entrance test scores, physical aptitude, medical certification, extracurricular activities, and demonstrated leadership potential.

Graduates of the service academies are appointed upon active duty as commissioned officers and serve in the appropriate military branch for a minimum of five years.  For questions regarding a nomination to a service academy, contact Margaret Smith in Hensarling’s Dallas office at (214) 349-9996, or visit
