Fitzpatrick announces service academy nominations

Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-8) joined Bucks and Montgomery county students, families and military veterans last month to announce his selections for military service academy nominations.

“Just over 238 years, not far from here, General George Washington led a committed group of volunteers across a frozen river in a daring attack. A move that inspires military minds and average Americans today – as much for what it inspired as what it accomplished,” said Fitzpatrick speaking to the group at the Bucks County Courthouse. “Tonight, we recognize this promising group of future leaders seated before us who have chosen to take up the same mantle carried by those patriots who fought for liberty with General Washington. As we gather here tonight to celebrate their achievements, I feel fortunate to have these moments to share with our future leaders.”
