Congressman Earl L.“Buddy” Carter (R-Ga.) recently announced the appointments of First District students nominated by him to United States Service Academies. Carter nominated students from Georgia’s First District to be considered for appointment to an academy. After a competitive process including the consideration by the First District Academy Selection Board, the academies evaluated each individual and selected them for admission to the Class of 2023.

“One of the privileges of serving in the United States House of Representatives is the opportunity to nominate outstanding students from the First District to be considered for appointment to our nation’s Service Academies,” Carter said.

“The First District of Georgia has a rich military heritage and I believe each of these impressive students are great candidates to continue this tradition. I thank them and wish each of them the best of luck as they go on to serve our great nation.”
