Minnesota Congressman John Kline honored Chaska seniors Brendan Jackson and Madison Miler at a ceremony in his Burnsville office to recognize his nominees to the U.S. Service Academies.

“As a retired Marine Corps Colonel and a member of the House Armed Services Committee, I take a great deal of pride in the fine young men and women who serve our country,” Kline said. “The caliber of Service Academy candidates is high and it is an honor to nominate the best candidates the 2nd District has to offer.”

Kline nominated Brendan Jackson, a senior at Chaska High School, to West Point. Jackson plays hockey and soccer. His parents are Paul and Kristi Jackson.

Kline nominated Madison Miler, a senior at Chaska High School, to the U.S. Naval Academy. Miler competes in cross country, track and field, Nordic skiing, and soccer. Her parents are Thomas and Sarah Miler.

The Air Force, Army (West Point), Naval, and Merchant Marine Academies require applicants to a U.S. Service Academy to receive a nomination from their member of congress, senator, the vice president, or the president.

Students from Minnesota’s 2nd Congressional District who wish to attend a Service Academy may submit an application, which is evaluated by members of Kline’s Service Academy Advisory Board. Final nominations are made by Kline. Each academy selects students for enrollment from among those nominated.

Students interested in applying for a 2013 nomination can receive more information online by visiting and selecting the “Student Corner” link, or by calling Congressman Kline’s office at (952) 808-1213.
