“I have been very fortunate to host the Academy Information events for more than two decades,” said Senator Harry Reid. “There are so many bright and talented young Nevadans who will make the choice to serve their country with honor and courage in elite leadership roles. These events help set these students in the right direction by helping to inform them about the opportunities available. I admire the students who choose to attend our nation’s service academies. It is an important decision and commitment they are making to themselves and to their country.”

"This year's Academy Information Day will be a great opportunity for young Nevadans to learn about the various service academies and relevant procedures for receiving a congressional nomination,” said Senator Dean Heller. “These student are about to embark on a journey that will involve courage and self-sacrifice, and I commend all of them for taking this first step in the admissions process.”

"Over the past three years I have been proud to nominate fine young men and women from the third district for admission to our nation's service academies,” said Congressman Joe Heck. “As an Army Reservist, I take very seriously the responsibility to nominate the very best and brightest to serve our nation and Academy Night is a great way to meet the next class of interested students. While I am unable to attend this year's southern Nevada event due to military duty, I look forward to working with the other delegation members and my staff to identify yet another strong class of academy nominations."

“As an Army ROTC alumnus and the father of a veteran, who is a Navy ROTC alumna, I value the educational opportunities provided by our armed forces, whether it's through the GI Bill or our outstanding service academies,” said Congressman Mark Amodei. “I am thrilled to join the Nevada delegation for Academy Day and look forwarding to meeting some of the best young people the Silver State has to offer as they consider this path to serving our country.”

“U.S. service academies offer students a first class education and a unique opportunity to develop leadership skills needed in the military and in civilian life,” said Congresswoman Dina Titus. “I consider it a great honor to nominate outstanding and talented Nevadans to attend service academies, and look forward to meeting each of this year’s potential nominees.”

“It takes true leadership to step up to the plate and make the decision to better our nation by attending a service academy,” said Congressman Steven Horsford. “The students that receive their education at a service academy go on to be some of Nevada’s best and brightest men and women.  A military education is an inspiring experience. I urge all prospective students to take advantage of these incredibly helpful informational sessions.”
