Congressman Emanuel Cleaver

Representing the 5th District of MISSOURI

Military Academy Nominations

Thank you for your interest in the U.S. Service Academies. As your Congressional Representative, I have the privilege of nominating individuals to the service academies.

The honor of attending a service academy comes with an obligation and commitment to serve in the military upon graduation. The academic, physical, and character requirements are stringent. Please review my page of Important Information for those seeking a Military Academy Nomination.

Best wishes to you as you pursue your goal of attending one of the U.S. Service Academies and serving our country.

To request a Military Academy Nomination from my office, please complete the application below. A complete application packet may be submitted via one of two ways.

Please note: Your "permanent address" or "legal residence" must be located in Missouri’s 5th Congressional District in order to apply for a nomination through Congressman Cleaver.

An appointment to the Service Academies is based on a desire by the candidate to devote a lifetime of military service and implies recognition by the appointee of an obligation to the government to devote him / herself to a military career. Are you interested in an appointment on that basis?
