WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Congressman Leonard Lance (NJ-07 on Wednesday proudly announced the Seventh Congressional District students who were nominated and appointed into the Unites States Service Academies, including several from Basking Ridge.

I am proud of these brave men and women who have stepped forward to serve our Nation.  In each I know there is a love of country and a deep desire to serve.  Placing nominations for the United States Service Academies is among the most gratifying responsibilities for a Member of Congress,” said Lance.  “I have great confidence in this year’s talented and qualified class of accepted nominees.  I wish them and their fellow classmates safety and great success.”
