    As I am learning about the VP nomination process it looks as if he just throws it back to the various academies, "here pick one and go with it". Anyhow my question is that it states that three letters of recommendation are required similar to most other nominations but you are supposed to send the letters directly to the academy, ok pretty simple but who or to whom do you address it - "Dear Mr. Vice President" even though his web site states that he has nothing to do with it?

    Thanks.

    You don't have to send extra LORS for the VP. The app is done online and the Academies use the LORS that are sent in with the regular application. Nothing extra to do.

    OK but there are no actual letter(s) of recommendation that go directly to The Academy, there are forms that go directly from 2 teachers but no letters?

    I guess it depends on the Academy. USAFA allows 3 LORs as well as 2 teacher evaluations and one from the school counselor for a tot add L of 6. USNA only requests the teachers and school counselor and No LORs. I have no idea what the other Academies require. Perhaps someone else can chime in.

    Like FalconsRock said, USAFA allows 3 LORs. For USNA, you may submit additional LORs (I think a max of 2, I'm not sure) as well as teacher evals. Those evaluation forms that all 3 SAs use basically rate the candidate on communication, leadership, and character abilities. They do have a section for remarks, so it does have a personal written component.
