Senator Carper Announces Nomination To West Point To Seniors BJ Alleyne and Patrick Rowe

December 20, 2023 Press Release
U.S. Senator Tom Carper (D-Del.), a retired Navy Captain and the last Vietnam veteran serving in the U.S. Senate, announced the names of his service academy nominees for the Class of 2028, bringing these Delawareans one step closer to joining the ranks of America’s military officers. Each year, members of the United States Congress are charged with nominating top candidates from their home state, ensuring the best and brightest are considered for admission to the nation’s leading service academies.

“I am proud to nominate this excellent group of Delaware students to our nation’s service academies,” said Senator Carper. “Service academies have the important responsibility of developing the next generation of leaders who display integrity, intelligence, and dedication in all they do. I wish these young Delawareans the best of luck as they begin their training in service of others.”

We are proud of seniors BJ Alleyne and Patrick Rowe, who received student nominations to West Point from Senator Carper on December 20, 2023. BJ also verbally committed to play football.

The application, nomination, and selection procedures are among the most demanding college admissions processes in the United States. Congratulations, and thank you for your commitment to serving our country!
