Roe Announces 8th Annual Military Service Academy Day


Washington, September 5, 2017 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-TN) announced he will host the 8th Annual Military Service Academy Day on Saturday, September 16, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at Greeneville High School in Greeneville, TN. Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m.  

Congressman Roe will host the 8th Annual Military Service Academy Day to assist those interested in applying for any U.S. Service Academy. Those who attend will have an opportunity to speak with representatives from the United States Air Force Academy, United States Coast Guard Academy, United States Merchant Marine Academy, United States Military Academy, United States Naval Academy & Army, Navy and Air Force ROTC.

Tennessee residents between the ages of 17 and 23 may apply to any of the four service academies if they meet eligibility requirements in leadership, physical aptitude, scholarship and character. The four service academies are the Military Academy at West Point, New York; the Naval Academy at Annapolis, Maryland; the Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs, Colorado; and the Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point, New York.

Tennesseans interested in being nominated to one of the four Academies for the Class of 2022 should apply by November 1, 2017. The nomination packet can be found on the Congressman’s website.

“Our nation's service academies provide an excellent education to qualified young men and women who want to serve their country,” said Roe. “It is inspiring each year to see young people in our state who want to serve, and I encourage those interested to apply. I look forward to recommending some of our state's best and brightest students again this year.”

Congressman Roe will make nominations to the academies of the most qualified candidates by December 31, 2017. Applicants are encouraged to submit applications to the First Congressional District Office as well as the offices of Senators Alexander and Corker to better their chances of receiving a nomination. The academies will make the final decision on acceptance and announce appointments next spring.

Interested applicants should contact Congressman Phil Roe’s office at (423) 247-8161 or e-mail Tracie.OHara@mail.house.gov

Roe Statement on Chimney Tops 2 Fire Report



Washington, August 31, 2017 

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. – Rep. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-Tenn.) released the following statement on the release of the U.S. National Park Service Chimney Tops 2 fire report:

“The fires that occurred in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, were unprecedented and heart-wrenching. I can't say enough how thankful I am for the courage and valor of the first responders and firefighters who did everything they could to help stop the fires from spreading, and my thoughts and prayers continue to be with every person affected by this horrible tragedy. Tennessee experienced one of the worst fires it has seen in the past 100 years last year, and this long-awaited report contains many helpful recommendations that will go a long way to prevent tragedies like this in the future. I thank state, local and park officials for their tireless work on behalf of Sevier Countians, and I commend Secretary Zinke for prioritizing this important review."
