Washington, DC – Today, Congressman Bill Huizenga (MI-02) announced that six students from across the Second Congressional District have received appointments from a U.S. Service Academy.  These future Cadets and Midshipmen will report to their respective Academy this summer as part of the Class of 2018.

 

"Service to our nation is one of the greatest contributions an individual can make," said Huizenga. "Congratulations to these next generation leaders on receiving an appointment to a U.S. Service Academy.  These students represent some of the finest in our military and bring with them the values instilled in them by their family and reinforced by their friends and their community.  I have no doubt they will serve this nation with both dedication and distinction."
