Today, Rep. Marie Gluesenkamp Perez (WA-03) announced she will be hosting a Service Academy Open House in Lewis County.

The event will take place on Thursday, April 4, 2024 from 5:15 – 6:15 p.m. at the Veterans Memorial Museum, located at 100 SW Veterans Way, Chehalis, WA 98532. This will be the Congresswoman’s second Service Academy Open House, and the first held in 2024.

At the event, Southwest Washington high school students and their families will be able to learn more about pursuing a career in our nation’s Armed Forces and meet with representatives from the U.S. Military, Naval, Air Force, and Merchant Marine Academies.

Beginning May 15, 2024, high school juniors, or anyone 17-22 years of age residing in Washington’s Third District, will be able to apply for a service academy nomination from Rep. Gluesenkamp Perez on her website. Completed applications must be submitted by November 12, 2024 and applicants will be scheduled for interviews shortly after.

“One of my most important duties as a Member of Congress is to nominate the next generation of young leaders to our nation’s military service academies. This past cycle, I nominated some truly outstanding students from across Southwest Washington,” said Rep. Gluesenkamp Perez. “I’m holding this open house for young people to hear about the differences between academies, what makes a strong candidate, and the application process for securing a nomination.”

Rep. Gluesenkamp Perez nominated 20 students from across Southwest Washington for service academies in 2024.

The Congresswoman’s team always stands ready to support students with the application process. Those with questions not listed in the FAQs are encouraged to reach out online, by phone at (360) 695-6292, or in person at her Vancouver or Kelso offices.
