Manchin speaks with more than 1,200 West Virginia students at 37 schools about U.S. Service Academies

Last week, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) hosted a video call with more than 1,200 West Virginia students to encourage them to apply to the U.S. Service Academies and answer student questions about the application process. Students interested in applying to a U.S. Service Academy can submit an application to Senator Manchin’s office by October 1, 2022. 
“Attending a U.S. Service Academy is a privilege reserved for the best and brightest young men and women across the country,” said Senator Manchin. “I’ve always said West Virginia is one of the most patriotic states in the nation, and I was honored to speak with so many of our students today about the wonderful opportunities at a U.S. Service Academy. These students are the future of West Virginia, and I applaud their interest in serving our country. I look forward to nominating the most qualified candidates to these prestigious academies, where I know they will make our state and country proud.”
