    Sen. Cornyn is having an event for all Texas appointees who have accepted (it looks like) in San Antonio on May 30. You may want to contact the academy coordinator in his office if you have not received the invite. DS did not get a nom from Cornyn, but was still invited. DS' MOC didn't call with the appointment. Then an email was sent to MOC office that DS accepted appointment, and MOC didn't respond again. I guess since the election is over, MOC lost interest....nice that Cornyn reached out to all though.

    We got an invite as well. DD got NOM from TX -14 Weber, not Cornyn. We would like to go but it's DD prom weekend. Let us know how it goes! We live outside Houston, was hoping for something from Cruz. He's not busy now. Unfortunately.

    Golfindad, are you going? DD decided to leave prom weekend early to go to this. We live near Galveston, so it's a bit of a trip, but certainly a nice honor!

    I also got my nomination from Congressman Weber. Sen. Cornyn does a service academy event every year, but Cruz doesn't do anything.

    The reception for all service academy appointees is done by the SENIOR senator of the state. Cornyn is the senior senator. Cruz has private receptions with his nominees. Cruz nominated our DS in 2014 and we met him one on one in San Antonio. Very generous with his time and attention. The reception that Cornyn holds is very nice, but it invites students from all over the state from every service academy. The appointees walk across the stage, take a picture with Cornyn and take a group picture by their intended academy. Very nice, very impressive, but it would be redundant for Cruz to hold a separate event. Hopefully you will have better weather for your reception. We drove thru torrential rains to get there, got there as the last person was being seated and we were soaking wet.

    Not going. Places to go, things to do, golf to play, and just 33 days to do so.
