Congressman Tom Graves will hold an information fair about U.S. service academies on March 26 at Riverside Military Academy in Gainesville.

Graves represents the 9th District, which includes most of Forsyth County.

All students in grades eighth and higher who are interested in attending one of the nation's military service academies are encouraged to attend with their parents. School counselors are also welcome.

Service academy representatives from the following schools will be present: U.S. Military Academy, or West Point; the U.S. Naval Academy; U.S. Air Force Academy; the U.S. Coast Guard; and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy.

Information on the admissions and nominations processes will be available.

In addition, each academy will detail its program during a brief introduction and have information tables set up. Each school will also provide in-depth briefings in a designated room.

Representatives from each of the major Reserve Officer Training Corps, or ROTC, college programs will also be available to answer questions and provide information to students and families.

Those wishing to attend are asked to R.S.V.P. to Graves' office at (770) 535-2592 before Monday.
