Austin Gene Vickers of Acampo has received Rep. Jerry McNerney’s nomination and an offical appointment to the United States Naval Academy for the Class of 2017. Vickers is currently attending Jim Elliot Christian High School and will enter the Naval Academy for summer training upon graduation.

As one of the service academies, the United States Naval Academy serves as a crucial institution of the American military. Its campus, which is located in Annapolis, Md, was established in 1845 and named a National Historic Landmark in 1961. Candidates submit a preliminary application but must also apply for nomination from a government official, typically a U.S. representative, senator or the president or vice president. Academic areas include engineering and weapons, mathematics and science and humanities and social science. Graduates are then commissioned as an officer in the Navy or Marine Corps.
