LOS ANGELES – On Saturday, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D - Los Angeles County) hosted the Sixth Annual Multi-District Service Academy Day virtually. 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. Mike Garcia, Judy Chu, Pete Aguilar, Jimmy Gomez, Karen Bass, Nanette Barragán, Katie Porter, Mike Levin, Sara Jacobs and Senator Dianne Feinstein.

“It was a privilege and an honor to host the Sixth Annual Service Academy Day. I was inspired to see how many young people were interested in attending a service academy. Attending any one of the prestigious service academies is a great pathway to service. 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.”
