To be considered for an appointment, students must complete a lengthy application process that shows their aptitude in academics, leadership and athletics, the newspaper reported.
United States Service Academies, or military academies, are essentially military colleges. They are federal academies for undergraduate education and training of commissioned officers. According to the U.S. Department of Defense website, there are five academies: United States Military Academy, United States Naval Academy, United States Air Force Academy, United States Coast Guard Academy, and United States Merchant Marine Academy.
Karn was appointed to the U.S. Naval Academy, Tyron to the U.S Air Force Academy and Onclay to the U.S. Military Academy, the Sun Sailor reported.
