“As a member of Congress I have the privilege of selecting a limited number of nominees for each military service academy,” said McMorris. “These nominees are the future leaders of our Armed Forces.

Each candidate for a nomination must meet the following basic eligibility requirements as of July 1 of the year of entry to a service academy: reside in the 5th Congressional District of Washington; be a United States citizen; be at least 17 years old, but not have passed your 23rd birthday; and be unmarried, not pregnant, and have no legal obligation for support of a child or other dependents.
