On Thursday, U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) announced his nominations for U.S. service academy appointments. A record 149 students applied for the nominations, and a select group was interviewed by an advisory board chosen by Senator Young.
Out of 60 interviewed, 39 exemplary young men and women from across Indiana received a nomination from Senator Young. A nomination does not guarantee admission to a service academy, but is required in order to be considered. Nominees are chosen based on personal merit. Criteria considered include evidence of character, leadership, academic excellence, physical aptitude, and extracurricular activities.
“I had the privilege of recommending a talented group of Hoosiers for admission to the United States service academies this year,” said Senator Young. “These young men and women are highly qualified to serve our country and I’m very proud of their hard work. I wish them the best of luck in their application process.”

Hamilton County nominees for the United States Naval Academy include: Nicholas Bostock, of Fishers, and Kiel Brenczewski, of Fishers.
Hamilton County nominees for the United States Military Academy include: Thomas Gastineau, of Carmel, and Benjamin Vorisek, of Westfield (also nominated to the United States Naval Academy).
