WASHINGTON, D.C. – The office of U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) will host three Service Academy days this month for students interested in learning more about the U.S. Service Academies.  The events will be in Monroe, Lafayette and New Orleans.

Representatives from West Point, the Naval Academy, the Air Force Academy, the Merchant Marine Academy, the Coast Guard Academy and local ROTC programs will be present.  This is an opportunity for students to discuss opportunities available at the academies, free college educations and commissioned officer slots.

“Our Service Academies train and educate some of the bravest men and women in this country,” said Sen. Kennedy.  “I have great respect for the students who decide to serve their country and dedicate themselves to learning at one of the academies.”

This event is free and geared towards high school students, parents and active duty members who are interested in learning more about the academies.
