Congressman Bob Filner announced today that he is nominating students from Brawley Union High School and Central Union High School for a possible appointment to one of the U.S. military academies.   “I’m proud to nominate these outstanding students for the opportunity to be chosen to enter one of our prestigious military academies!” said Congressman Filner.  “Service to our country is one of the most honorable paths a student can take.”   Joshua Olivas of Brawley Union High School is being nominated for the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.  Donald Wharton, also of Brawley Union High School, is being nominated for the U.S. Air Force Academy.  Central Union High School student Jesus Villegas, III is being nominated for a possible appointment to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.   In order for students to be considered for an appointment to a service academy an applicant must be nominated by an authorized nominating source, which includes the President, Vice President, Members of Congress and the Secretary of each service.   Receiving a nomination is just the first step in the process to being chosen for an appointment to one of the service academies.  Most appointees are informed of their selection in April by the service academy.
