United States Senator Kirsten Gillibrand recently announced her nominations for the United States Air Force, Military, Naval and Merchant Marine Academies.

Brian Murphy of Smithtown was among those nominated for the United States Merchant Marine Academy.

A selection committee formed by Senator Gillibrand chose the nominees from a large group of qualified applicants. Decisions were based on criteria including academic record, leadership potential, and overall achievement. Final acceptance is determined solely by the service academies. 

“Our Service Academies are distinguished by a devotion to honor, courage and commitment,” said Senator Gillibrand. “I am honored to nominate these young, talented New Yorkers who exemplify these core values. It is my hope that the accomplished nominees have the chance to live their dreams and serve in our country’s armed forces with distinction.”
