Congressman Ted Poe will be hosting an informational program for high school students in the 2nd Congressional District to learn more about the United States Service Academies and the application process. Representatives from each of the academies will be present to talk to students and their parents as well as answer questions. Congressman Poe and his staff will also explain the application process, criteria and important upcoming deadlines.

Service to God, country and people are the most honorable accomplishments and contributions that a human being can make in life, said Poe. I want to enlist all parents, educators and community leaders to encourage young talent to submit an application for consideration to one of our military academies. This program will give an overview of what the academies offer and an insight into earning a coveted spot in the chain of command for the most respected and best trained military in the world.
