Our DS earned nominations from both senators as well as district congressman (letters as well as appear on his portal). He received a congratulatory call from district congressman two days before BFE arrived last week. This week, one of our senators gave him a congratulatory call as well. Is there a way we know which nomination was used for his West Point appointment?

No, you will never know. Admissions does not inform cadets how their nomination was charged.

And as typical politicians, all 3 MOCs will claim credit.

I have read here that it will show up on the graduate's official transcript (or is it the diploma?), but that it is otherwise unpublished to the candidate/cadet.

I am not aware of the nomination showing up on a transcript or diploma - mine don't, but times may have changed.

However, in the Register of Graduates many entries indicate the type of appointment - QA (qualified alternate), AA (additional appointee), PRESD (Presidential), etc. Some entries indicate just a state abbreviation in the type of appointment entry. I think that those entries may be the appointments charged to a MOC, although it does not indicate any specific MOC or district.

You can find out after you're at West Point by requesting a copy of your official file. The interesting thing is that Admissions can keep juggling where candidates are slotted all the way until the very end of the appointment cycle, depending on who accepts their appointments or declines them, top candidates whom they thought they would be appointing who are not waiverable due to health conditions, etc.
