Sam Johnson to congratulate local service academy bound students
May 31, 2012 -
On Saturday, June 2nd at 10:00 a.m., U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (3rd Dist.-Texas) will congratulate local service academy bound students at a gathering with their families in the Sunnyslope Room at the Plano Centre, located at 2000 East Spring Creek Parkway in Plano. While this event will be closed to the public, credentialed members of the news media are welcome to attend.
“Each year I have the privilege of nominating a limited number of people to four of the five service academies. The honor of attending a service academy comes with an obligation and commitment to serve in the military for a minimum of five years upon graduation,” said Johnson, a 29-year Air Force veteran and a former Prisoner of War in Vietnam for nearly seven years, more than half of that time in solitary confinement.
