Military Service Academy Information Day – Saturday, April 29, 2017

Military Academy Information Day
Saturday, April 29, 2017
*10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
Dobbins Air Reserve Base (Hanger 5)
Marietta, Ga. 30069

Registration required by April 25 to attend April 29 event

U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., today encouraged Georgia students interested in learning more about attending one of the nation’s five military service academies to register before the upcoming April 25 deadline for the annual statewide U.S. Military Service Academy Day. The event, hosted in coordination with the Georgia congressional delegation, will take place at Dobbins Air Reserve Base on April 29, 2017, and includes useful information regarding the military academy application, nomination and appointment process.

Isakson’s Military Service Academy Day event is open to students in grades eight through 12 and their parents. Parents and attendees must register by April 25, 2017, due to security restrictions at Dobbins Air Reserve Base, but there is no cost to attend.

Along with Isakson, U.S. Senator David Perdue, R-Ga., and U.S. Representatives Barry Loudermilk, R-Ga.-11, and Rob Woodall, R-Ga.-7, are scheduled to participate in the event.

Representatives from all five academies – the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, the U.S. Air Force Academy and the U.S. Military Academy – will deliver presentations regarding their requirements and expectations for admittance. The event is the largest of its kind in the country and typically draws hundreds of students and families from across the state of Georgia.

The Lassiter-Pope-Kell Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (JR ROTC) Armed Exhibition Drill Team will perform at the beginning of the program, a local highlight at Military Academy Day.

* Due to Dobbins’ security restrictions, all individuals planning to attend the free event must make reservations in advance by April 25, 2017. Photo identification will be required at the main entrance gate for admittance. 

Guests may arrive as early as 9:00 a.m. in order to avoid congestion at the entrance gate and visit information tables.

All individuals who are interested in attending must register through Isakson’s website at https://www.isakson.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/service-academies no later than Tuesday, April 25, 2017, at 5:00 p.m., and may contact Isakson’s academy director Nancy Brooks at (770) 661-0999 with any questions.
