A Visit With Our Future Leaders
Annapolis, MD - Today, Congressman Kevin McCarthy traveled to the United States Naval Academy (USNA) in Annapolis, Maryland where he visited with eleven midshipmen all of whom the Congressman nominated for attendance. Prior to joining the entire USNA Brigade for lunch in the dining hall, Congressman McCarthy met with USNA Superintendent, Vice Admiral Ted Carter to discuss the important role service academies play in shaping our nation’s future leaders. Admiral Carter and Leader McCarthy discussed the future of the U.S. Navy, and the contributions the Academy is making in preparing these future officers for challenges facing our national security. On a lighter note, the Admiral previewed the outlook of the storied football program for the remainder of the year to Congressman McCarthy.
Congressman McCarthy released the following statement after his visit:
“It was with great pride to visit so many future leaders from our community at the United States Naval Academy. It is a true honor and serious responsibility as a Member of Congress to nominate our students to attend our service academies. America is a nation that must always lead in an increasingly dangerous world, and the students at our service academies will be integral in defending our nation. It is comforting to know that so many of our neighbors will serve in these efforts. I look forward to helping future classes of our emerging leaders follow their dream to some of our nation’s finest institutions.”
