U.S. SENATE News:
 
WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S. Sen. Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., announced Tuesday his nominees to the United States Service Academies including Seung Heon Kim of Los Alamos High School. 
 
A nomination is required to attend the U.S. Military Academy, the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Air Force Academy, and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy – the Coast Guard Academy does not require a nomination. Being nominated is a significant honor. The application process is rigorous, and only the most qualified and meritorious candidates receive a nomination.

"Our service academies provide exceptional education and training that prepare students for leadership roles in our armed forces as well as the skills needed to succeed after their military service," Heinrich said. "I'm pleased to announce and congratulate this year's nominees–these students have shown incredible initiative and I commend them on their commitment to serve our country."
