    I believe I read somewhere that your SAI can nominate 3 cadets for service academies. I am in army jrotc so the SAI part is correct (Senior Army Instructor). What I'm wondering is, if he can nominate 3 cadets could he nominate me for the United States Naval Academy, or can he just nominate me for the United States Military Academy. And if it means anything our jrotc unit has held "Honor Unit with Distinction" for over a decade.

    raulkingviera,

    My son was also in JROTC and we looked into obtaining a JROTC nomination to the Naval Academy. From what I learned, and maybe someone else can correct me, your unit has to be a unit that has held the "Honor Unit With Distinction" for your instructor tobe able to nominate you. I believe your instructor, although Army JROTC, can nominate you for USNA. We ended up not following through, since son received a Congressional and Senatorial nomination, but I think your instructor can nominated you to USNA, not just USMA.

    Good luck and let us know how you make out!

    This was discussed a few threads down.

    For example, since I was in a first-year AJROTC program last year, I am eligible for a AJROTC nomination to USMA because my unit is an Army unit. I am not eligible for the same nomination to USNA because we have not been judged as an Honor Unit with Distinction yet. If I was in a NJROTC unit, I could have that nom to USNA but not USMA. :thumb:
