“I am honored to nominate Glenn Patrick and Luke Stringer to the U.S. Air Force Academy. Their dedication to academic excellence and their many achievements outside the classroom give me confidence in their ability to succeed in this new endeavor.  I believe they will represent Alabama with distinction and look forward to their future accomplishments.”

To be considered for a service academy nomination, all applicants must be a resident of Alabama and complete the required ACT or SAT exams, a letter of recommendation, an official school transcript, a qualifying medical examination, and a completed application form – which can be found here.

Although Senator Shelby has made the nominations it is now up to the Air Force Academy to make the final decision.
