A local US representative will be holding a special day to educate high schoolers on the military later this week.

Indiana 8th District Congressman Larry Bucshon is set to hold a US Service Academy Day from 9 to 11 am central time this upcoming Saturday. The event will be held at the Vincennes University Gibson County Center for Advanced Manufacturing and Logistics in Fort Branch. The Academy Day will include education on each of the US service academies, the process for applying, nominations made by Congress, and everyday life for a service academy cadet.

Representatives for this event will come from the Air Force Academy in Colorado, the Coast Guard Academy in Connecticut, the Merchant Marine Academy in New York, the Military Academy in New York, and the Naval Academy in Maryland.

This will mark the second Academy Day that Bucshon has hosted this year. For more information you can visit bucshon.house.gov or call 465-6484.
