Wilson nominated for military academies by Westerman

Marc Wilson of Mena has been nominated by U.S. Rep. Bruce Westerman (R-Ark.) for   the U.S. Military Academy, Air Force Academy and Naval Academy. Westerman recently announced the Fourth District’s student nominations to military academies. “I’d like to encourage all Fourth District students interested in serving their country to consider attending a military academy. America’s freedom and values depend on the courage of young people who put on a uniform and fight to protect liberty. U.S. military academies offer unparalleled opportunities to serve while obtaining a fully-funded, top-notch education,” said Westerman.

To attend a U.S. service academy, students must be nominated by either the vice president, their senator or their representative. All interested candidates are seniors in high school or currently attending an Academy Preparatory School, and they fill out a packet and submit it through their elected representative’s office. The nomination deadline was Nov. 1, 2019. 

Wilson is the son of Phillip and Kristi Wilson, also of Mena.
