Each year one of my duties as a United States Senator is to nominate qualified candidates to the United States military academies. This year I, along with members of the Georgia Congressional Delegation, will host our annual statewide academy event to familiarize students with the application and nomination process and to expose them to academy life.
The spring Academy Day will be held on Saturday, April 27, 2019, from 10:00-11:30 a.m. at Dobbins Air Reserve Base located at 1408 Dobbins Place, Dobbins ARB, Marietta, GA 30069. Guests should arrive as early as 8:45 a.m. to clear security and to visit information tables. Representatives from all five academies as well as cadets and midshipmen will be in attendance and ready to answer questions. The event is targeted to students grades 8-12 and their parents. All attendees must make a reservation due to security restrictions and must present photo identification to the Cobb Parkway checkpoint for admittance onto the base. Per U.S. Department of Defense policy, you must be a U.S. citizen to access the base.
All persons who are interested in attending must make a reservation by registering online at https://www.isakson.senate.
Please make this information available to your college counselors and your students. I am attaching an Academy Day flyer for you to distribute. Information on this event and the academy process will appear on my website, https://www.isakson.senate.
