Cramer seeking applications

Rep. Kevin Cramer announced he is accepting applications for con- gressional nomination to the U.S. service academies.

Young men and women interested in attending the U.S. Air Force Academy, the U.S. Military Academy, the U.S. Naval Academy, or the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy can complete a congressional nomination application for admission. Those selected would enter the academy in June 2015.

In order to qualify for admission into the class of 2019, an individual must be at least 17 years old but not past his or her 23rd birthday on July 1, 2015, unmarried with no dependents, and a resident of North Dakota. Final decisions are made by the individual service academy in early 2015. A separate application must also be filed with the academy of choice.

Those interested can find more information on Cramer’s official website, or by calling Randy Richards in his Grand Forks office at (701) 738-4880. Applications are due to Cramer’s office on Oct. 1.
