Press Release

Members of Congress have the distinct privilege of nominating outstanding young men and women to attend the nation's military academies. Congressman Huelskamp recruited a board of Kansans to review applicants with the board providing recommendations to Huelskamp.

"I am honored to nominate these distinguished men and women to attend our nation's military academies.
