Sixteen Hudson Valley students, including three from Tarrytown, and one each from Briarcliff Manor, Croton-on-Hudson and Montrose, will be attending the United States Military (West Point), Air Force, Naval, Merchant Marine, and Coast Guard Academies. Students will report to the academies for basic training this summer.

“Congratulations to the students from Westchester and Rockland Counties who were appointed to the United States Service Academies,” said Congressman Mondaire Jones. “These outstanding students have dedicated themselves to developing their leadership skills and strengthening the community around them.
