For anyone who is reapplying to a Service Academy: Of course you already know you must seek a nomination again - from all available sources, which include MOC's. This includes those on "Civil Prep" scholarships and those in Academy prep schools. First, call your MOC. See if they still have your file. Ask if you must complete the application all over again. I happened to call our Congressman's nomination manager and she told me that all my daughter needs to do is fax them an update. She doesn't have to write a new essay or get new letters of recommendations etc.
