LONG BRANCH, NJ – Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-06) announced that his annual Academy Day will be held on Saturday, September 22nd at Naval Weapons Station Earle, Leonardo Pier Complex. The event will provide a forum for students who are interested in attending one of the country’s prestigious U.S. Service Academies.

“I hope that U.S. Service Academy Day will inspire young people of the 6th Congressional District to explore the vast opportunities that our service academies have to offer,” said Pallone. “Academy graduates are selflessly prepared to assume some of the highest responsibilities of command, citizenship and government. I take these nominations very seriously because our nation’s service academies are some of the highest caliber institutions committed to graduating leaders of character, honor and integrity.”   

The event will focus on the admissions process, steps to obtaining a Congressional nomination, and lifestyles as Cadets or Midshipmen at the academies.  Interested students will have the opportunity to personally meet with representatives from the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, the U.S. Air Force Academy, the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy and the U.S. Coast Guard Academy.

Pallone lost Fort Monmouth, he should hide his head in shame.

I agree, but this is something he is doing for the kids and the military.

Hey Frank, while you are there, try to rescue the 300 housing units which are scheduled for destruction. Rep. Chris Smith and Freeloader Lillian Burry are responsible for their removal. The units would be perfect for Disabled American Veterans or plain old senior citizen vets. No impact on the pristine town of Colts Neck which Burry is the former Mayor. After they knock them down and pay the owner another $60 Million, they will be re-built in TX, at another $60 Million!!!! PS. Why didn't YOU save them in the first place???
