BAY COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Congressman Neal Dunn hosted a United States Military Service Academy Day Saturday evening.

He held events in Bay, Columbia, and Leon counties. The event in Bay County was Saturday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Gulf Coast State College.

High school and middle school aged students looking to join the military after high school were encouraged to attend. Cadets were there to speak with prospective students and explain the academy nomination process.

Congressman Neal Dunn said, "This is really a great evening for us, and we do this once a year and we do it at several locations throughout the district and the idea is actually to familiarize all these high school students, men and women, with the opportunities in the academies for them."

Congressman Dunn went on to say that this is one of his favorite events that he hosts.
