WILMINGTON, DE – Today, Congresswoman Blunt Rochester (DE-AL) announced that she has nominated 26 Delaware students for admission to United States Service Academies for the Class of 2023. Each year, members of the United States Congress are charged with nominating top candidates for attendance at four service academies: the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, NY; the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD; the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, CO; and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, NY.
