    As most probably know, in most districts and states, the Congressmen and Senators require a service academy applicant to submit letters of recommendation (from individuals who can vouch for a candidate's character) along with his or her nomination application. Can the letters of recommendation that you submit to the Congressmen be the same ones that you submit to the Senators? Or is this a "no-no"?

    Yes you can, and I would. You want to paint the best picture of yourself. If you feel that what you send to your Congressman is a great representation of yourself than I would definitely send it up to the Senators.

    content wise, it could be the same

    If you are asking can a letter of recommendation be "To Whom It May Concern" or "Honorable XYZ," a letter of recommendation addressed to specific person is always better. I have been many "To Whom It May Concern" and my first impression is that the recommendee did not care enough to address the recommediation individually.

    this is a related question..

    If you're getting a letter of rec from NJROTC, would it be recommended to use your Senior Naval Science Instructor AND Naval Science Instructor to write you one or would it be better to get a single letter of rec from different teachers?
