"The United States Service Academies offer the perfect opportunity to pursue an excellent education while serving your country. It takes a great deal of commitment, dedication, and leadership to make it at the academies, but the rewards are well worth the hard work. I urge anyone who believes they meet the qualifications to apply for nomination to a service academy." -- Senator Kit Bond
Military service to the United States is an honor. Young men and women who want to help defend our country can apply to the service academies. While there are several ways to join the armed services, the academies offer a uniquely rewarding experience, developing both strong leadership skills and providing an excellent undergraduate education.
Missouri has a tradition of producing outstanding military leaders. Many of these leaders, such as General John J. Pershing and General Omar Bradley, began their military careers at the service academies.
In order to gain admission, the academies require applicants to receive nominations from Members of Congress or other national leaders.
