Washington, D.C. –  U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., has nominated 24 Wyoming students for the United States Service Academies for 2009.

Enzi has announced his choices for the U.S. Air Force, Merchant Marine and Naval Academies and West Point.

“These students show true potential.  They are preparing for a bright future.  The academies provide an excellent education and will give students the skills they need to succeed in the military,” said Enzi. “Wyoming students continue to demonstrate their patriotism by applying to our service academies.  Their willingness to serve greatly benefits our country.”

Nominees are selected with the aid of an academy selection committee put together by the senator.  Receiving a nomination is the first step in the process of seeking an appointment to an academy.

Once the nomination process is complete, each academy will make a final selection.  Nominees may also be considered for admission under other categories.
