    Hello all,

    I was wondering if the "Children of Deceased/Disabled Vets, POW, MIA" nomination is a separate entity than the presidential nomination. In other words, if I apply to both, am I only considered for one?

    Thanks for your responses!

    I believe it is a separate nom and you can only qualify for one. Hopefully one of the other BGOs can chime in to confirm.

    NavyHoops is correct. You would only be considered for one (see copied Title 10 reference below). This is something I personally saw in the last admissions cycle, when only one nomination displayed. NOTE: the USNA admissions form for this nomination is the same one that is used for the presidential nomination, though a different qualification box would be checked. You are more than welcome to call admissions to make sure you fill out the form correctly and provide the appropriate documentation.
