Students Explore Military Careers at Military Service Academy Day


Local high school students explored military careers Friday evening at Florida State University. 

Students interested in pursuing a career in the military spent the evening at FSU to learn about their options. Representatives from the Air Force, Navy, and West Point Academy were there to give the students more information and ask questions. Congressman Neal Dunn was also there to speak about the various job opportunities and the importance of exploring military options. Dunn is also a part of a selection process of appointing young men and women into military programs. One Arnold High School student was appointed.

“I had no idea that this even existed. They’re getting a lot of good information and a lot of good input on opportunities that they have,” said the 2018 appointee Trevor Hunt.

“We already have eight appointees just this year and that’s a really high number of appointees in one congressional district,” said Dunn.

He says the military service academy day is great to let the future of our nation know all of the many jobs and opportunities available within the service.
