Hi All: Looking for an explenation. My son is very much interested to became a Navy Officer and he would like to go the USNA. He is a sophomore, graduating from HS in spring 2016 (so, if he is lucky, going to the Academy in Summer 2016). If he would like to ask for a VP nomination he needs to apply the year before the year is planning to go to the academy (so, in his case 2015). However application should be submitted in the period March-January. Does that mean that for Academy satring in Summer 2016 he should apply for VP nomination in the period March 2014-January 2015 or march 2015-January 2016? Thanks for your help!
