    Presidential Nomination for Naval Academy - my mom is AD with over 20 years in.

    I am confused, and I have called the admissions office and all they told me to do was go online and look at Step 4.

    So do you just customize the sample letter provided by the academy? and mail that in? I heard something about attaching my moms orders with the letter :confused:

    Can someone please help me Thank you!

    Might as well tag this question on. It doesn't effect me because I am not eligible for this nomination.

    Is the Presidential nomination a rolling process? Have they completed sending out notifications?

    I ask out of curiosity and simply because several people have said they have received presidential or ROTC/JROTC nominations.

    Only 20 JROTC nominations are accepted by the academy every year. I can vouch for that 2 spots have already been taken, myself and my friend from the same JROTC unit. JROTC nominations help out a lot if you turn in your application very early with all the other components of your application done.

    I understand that, but what does supporting documentation imply?

    This is listed on the sample letter under Presidential Nom. link of step 4 in admissions process:

    I verify that I have included the proper supporting documentation of my parent’s military status with this application(check appropriate box):
    □ Active duty officers: statement of service signed by personnel officer specifying all periods of active duty.
    □ Active duty enlisted: statement of service prepared by personnel officer specifying all periods of active duty and listing dates of enlistment and dates of expiration of enlistment.
    □ Reserves: proof of current service, including a copy of most current annual statement of reserve points (minimum points required 2880) and valid identification card, or notice of eligibility (NOE) for retirement.
    □ Retired with pay: copy of DD Form 214 (Member’s Copy 4)
    □ Deceased or 100% disabled: Veterans Administration official determination of 100% disability or service-connected death.

    So just pick which ever one applies to your case and send it in with the letter. (If Mom is still AD, then it would be box one or two, so your Mom would need to get a Statement of Service from her Military Personnel Office.)
