Sen. Mazie K. Hirono has nominated three Hawai‘i Island students to the U.S. military service academies for the Class of 2021.

The students’ applications are now being considered by the four academies for final selection.

“By applying to our nation’s service academies, these young men and women exemplify service above self,” said Sen. Hirono. “I am certain that each of these candidates will proudly represent the state of Hawai‘i as they continue the application process.”

Members of Congress nominate students to the U.S. Air Force Academy, the U.S. Military Academy, the U.S. Naval Academy and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy.

The U.S. Coast Guard Academy does not require Congressional nominations. Nomination does not guarantee appointment.
