Richard Hanna Hosts Academy Day for High School Students

U.S. representative Richard Hanna hosted "Academy Day" this morning for high school students interested in a congressional nomination to one of the U.S. military academies.

Hanna invited representatives from the U.S. Air Force, Military, Naval, Coast Guard, and Merchant Marine academies to come out and speak with students.

"We need our armed forces. We need the best and the brightest that are willing to serve and we educate them. It's extremely valuable education, all of these places are among the top 20 schools in the country," said congressman Richard Hanna.

Midshipman First Class Aaron Zimmerman representing the Naval Academy shared his experience with the students. He was nominated by Hanna in 2011, and entered in 2012.
