THE All Service Academies Ball is held annually to formally recognize and honor the choice made by young Cadets and Midshipmen from western Pennsylvania as they embark on careers serving and protecting our country by attending one of the FIVE U.S. Service Academies, WHICH develop future leaders for our armed forces.
Many of these young men and women go on to serve their country as leaders in all elements of our society. Particularly when America is at war. IT IS EXTREMELY gratifying to meet these talented AND DEDICATED young people who ARE COMMITTED TO SERVING OUR COUNTRY AND HAVE accepted the difficult challenges of our service academies.
