Congressman Poliquin Announces 2016 Military Service Academy Nominations

BANGOR – Today, Congressman Bruce Poliquin (ME-02) announced that he has nominated 18 students from Maine’s 2nd District to attend one of our Nation’s prestigious military service academies next year. The Congressman will personally call each nominee to congratulate them. Congressman Poliquin released the following statement:

 

“I am honored to nominate these dedicated Mainers for consideration to be admitted to one of our Nation’s prestigious military service academies,” said Congressman Poliquin. “Every year I am struck by the incredible talent, commitment to duty and record of service of all those who apply and are awarded these nominations. These young men and women are truly among the best and brightest. I wish all these nominees great success and hope they will continue to work hard serving our communities and Great Nation.”

 

Congressman Poliquin’s nominations were informed by the recommendations of his distinguished Service Academy Nomination Advisory Panel, which personally interviewed student applicants last month in Bangor.
