I cannot believe that I have not seen this site before. I have been gathering information for my son for nearly a year about the academies. I truly wish I had found this site earlier, it answers all of our questions. My son received his nominations to USAFA and USNA from Congressman Nunnelee who represents the 1st district in Mississippi, and the USNA from Senator Cochran in early and mid-December respectively. We are all very excited and proud. We have visited both USNA and USAFA as a family this fall. Both are fine institutions, with amazing young men and women, faculties, administrations and employees. Good luck to all of those nominated and appointed, it is such a great honor.
