Jun 11, 2012 -
Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA) announced his 2012 United States service academy appointments. Royce congratulated the students and their families during a reception he hosted to celebrate their outstanding achievement.
"The appointment process is highly selective, these young men and women should be extremely proud of their accomplishment. I have full confidence that these exceptional students will represent our community well," Royce said.
