Congratulation to James Robert Brooks

March 10, 2005    Washington, DC:  Congratulations are in order for James Robert Brooks, a 2001 graduate of Brazosport High School.  James, a senior at the prestigious Air Force Academy in Colorado, was nominated for the Academy by Congressman Paul.  James will graduate this spring and become an officer in the United States Air Force.

James, 21, is the son of Lynn Brooks and the late Phillip Brooks of Lake Jackson.  He is the first Brazosport High student to earn a nomination to the Academy, where he fought in the Air Force Wing Open boxing tournament.  James has been assigned to pilot training at Columbus Air Force Base in Mississippi upon graduation, where he may learn to fly anything from helicopters to the A-10 “Warthog” combat aircraft.

“I very much enjoy nominating young people for our military academies,” Congressman Paul stated.  “It’s gratifying to watch a young man like James not only earn admission to the Air Force Academy, but also succeed in his studies there.  His acceptance into a pilot training program demonstrates the Air Force has great faith in his capabilities.  He should be commended for these accomplishments, and I wish him well as he embarks on his Air Force career.”
