Gaetz, Dunn host Service Academy Day events
Each Congressional district has residents who desire an appointment to military academies. Those districts with a significant military presence tend to attract even more interest.
Republican Matt Gaetz’ 1st Congressional District is one of those with a large military population. Next week, he will host two Service Academy Nights for students and their families to learn more about the process for gaining an appointment.
Representatives from the Naval Academy, U.S. Military Academy, Air Force Academy, Coast Guard Academy and university ROTC programs will be present. The first event is set for Pace High School on Tuesday and NicevilHigh School on Thursday.
Both events begin at 6 p.m.
Joining Gaetz will be Lt. Gen. Brad Webb, Commander of Air Force Special Operations Command at Hurlbert Field, and businessman Jason Crawford, who was a decorated Army combat veteran.
Panama City Republican Neal Dunn, whose 2nd Congressional District also has a strong military presence, recently took part in Military Service Academy Day in his hometown.
