Hundreds attend Military Academy Day at Dobbins

Posted: Updated:

The annual Military Academy Day took place on Saturday at Dobbins Air Reserve Base.

It gave students an opportunity to learn about the U.S. military academies and the process of applying to them.

There are five academies: U.S. Military Academy, U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Merchant Marine Academy and U.S. Coast Guard Academy.

The event was open to students in grades eight through 12. U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-GA, said he started the event 15 years ago with about 17 students in attendance, and that number is now closer to 1,000.
