LOS ANGELES – On Saturday, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D - Los Angeles County) hosted the Fourth Annual Multi-District Service Academy Day at the Los Angeles Air Force Base in El Segundo. Attendees heard speakers from the United States Air Force Academy, United States Military Academy, United States Naval Academy, United States Coast Guard Academy and the United States Merchant Marine Academy. Service Academy Day offers prospective service academy students and their parents the opportunity to speak with representatives from service academies and ask questions about the admissions process. In attendance were staff members from the offices of Reps. Grace Napolitano, Karen Bass, Nanette Barragán, Alan Lowenthal, Raul Ruiz, and Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris.

“It was a privilege and an honor to host the Fourth Annual Service Academy Day at the Los Angeles Air Force Base. It was inspiring to see how many young people were interested in attending a service academy. Attending any one of the prestigious service academies is a great avenue to serving the United States. It was my pleasure to help facilitate an event in which prospective students could learn more about the academies from current and former students, admissions officers, and parents alike.”
