I received a nomination from my Senator and Congressman. The Senator's office told me that he does not specifically pick the primary nominee (vacancy winner) but rather all his nominees are in no real order. I just emailed my reps office to see if I received the primary nomination but he has not gotten back to me yet. Can someone explain to me what will happen if I am/am not the vacancy winner. Also, I was wondering if anyone in South Carolina has gotten their appointment to USMA or any other service academy. If not, when do they send them out?
