SAN DIEGO – This evening, Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52) hosted an information and resource event for high school students in the 52nd District interested in applying to one of the Service Academies or college ROTC programs.

“I’m proud to nominate exemplary young men and women from the 52nd District each year to our nation’s service academies, where they will be trained as leaders to protect and serve our country,” Rep. Peters said. “Attending a service academy or an ROTC program, and serving in the United States military, is a commitment and an honor that no one can take lightly. Providing information and resources about the service academy or the ROTC experience allows students to decide if this is the right path for them.”
