“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. They will have the opportunity to become commissioned officers and will be entrusted to carry on the power and prestige of our military services.”

Nominees for appointment to one of the academies are selected on a competitive basis, using criteria determined by the academies to be indicative of one's potential for success in the military. 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.
