Congressman Bill Owens has announced the nomination of 17 students to service academies this year. 

“These academies offer Upstate New York young men and women the opportunity to receive an excellent education while serving their country, and I am pleased to nominate so many for service,” said Owens.  “American service academies help to develop their students morally, mentally and physically.  As a home to Fort Drum, the North Country has long been known for the highest ideals of duty and honor and I look forward to seeing these future leaders carry on that tradition.”
