Moulton Encourages Students to Pursue Service Academy Nominations

Congressman Seth Moulton

Salem  — The office of Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA) is accepting applications to U.S. service academies through the end of October. Every Member of Congress has the ability to nominate students within their congressional district to attend a service academy. Moulton, a Marine who served in Iraq, annually nominates up to 10 candidates for vacant slots allocated to the district.

“Serving as an officer in the Marines was one of the hardest experiences of my life, but also one of the best. It takes a unique person to volunteer for service and to attend a service academy. I encourage anyone who is interested to learn more and apply,” Moulton said

For interested students, Rep Moulton’s office will be hosting an information session conference call on October 9th. For more information, or questions about the application process contact Isis Patterson in Rep. Moulton’s Salem office by emailing


The U.S. service academies include the:

  • U.S. Military Academy (USMA) in West Point, NY
  • U.S. Naval Academy (USNA) in Annapolis, MD
  • U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA) in Colorado Springs, CO
  • U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA) in Kings Point, NY
  • U.S. Coast Guard Academy (USCGA) in New London, CT


The U.S. Coast Guard Academy does not require a congressional nomination for appointment.
