    Can anyone help me with this? I've sent emails to the appropriate staff members of three of my state's congressman (Massachusetts) I've received auto-replies saying they'll be out of office until x date.

    All I have left to do for my nomination applications is send in the three letters of recommendation for each MOC. However, none of their websites/info packets say exactly how to send them in. Do they need to be sent by the writer, or can I send them all in at once, in one envelope, for reasons of efficiency/making sure they don't get lost/expediting the process?

    Thanks in advance!

    If I were you I would phone their office and ask how they'd prefer them to be sent. Every MOC office I have dealt with was extremely helpful in explaining precisely what they wanted, when they wanted it, and how could they help you?

    If NOBODY answers...put together the entire package and mail it in with a return receipt request.

    And keep copies of EVERYTHING!!!

    I've called before, but never managed to reach anybody, which is why I decided to rely on email.

    I'll keep calling then! Thank you!

    I work for a MOC and we have three letters that come in our packet. Those letters are handed out to the appropriate person, such as Teacher and then that person would seal in envelope and either mail directly to our district office in charge of nominations or give to the student to deliver. I am not sure why you are contacting three congressional offices in your state since you can only apply with one office/district. Just call your local congressional office and ask for person who handles service academy nominations.

    Senators and Representatives are all member of congress. You can apply through all three congressional offices in your state, two senators and one district representative.

    This is not correct. You can apply for 2 Senators and 1 Congressman/woman.

    If their application instructions are not clear, it is best to call their office and talk with someone associated with the MOC NOM process to be sure. Each state may have slightly different processes in this regard, so don't assume how it works in some other state is necessarily the same for yours.
