18th District Congressman Darin LaHood announced his nominations for military service academies. Nominees complete a rigorous application process conducted by a selection panel consisting of veterans as well as the 18th district’s community leaders.

The following nominees come from the WLDS/WEAI listening area: for the U.S. Military Academy at West Point – Isaac Escapa of Rushville; for the U.S. Air Force Academy Abigail McCue of Waverly; and for the U.S. Naval Academy Gervasio Marchizza of Auburn. In a press release announcing the nominees, LaHood said he was inspired by the nominees choosing public service and felt encouraged after meeting each individual during the nomination process.
