Congressman Hal Rogers commends local military academy appointee Jones
Congressman Hal Rogers (KY-05) commends local military academy appointees from the Fifth Congressional District. Three young men from southern Kentucky with extraordinary academic and extracurricular achievements met the high standards required of military academies and received nominations from Congressman Rogers to be a part of the 2016 graduating classes.
“If I could change one thing about my life, it would be that I had attended a military academy. There is no greater honor or preparation for life than our academies,” said Rogers. “I am so proud of these young men who are invigorated to be challenged physically and mentally by the best of the best. They received these appointments by their own high merits and it was a privilege to nominate each one and support their endeavors.”
