Danville, IN Congressman Jim Baird (R-IN-04) invites all students, parents and school officials from Indiana’s 4th Congressional District who are interested in learning more about attending our nation’s military academies to come to Academy Day on Saturday, May 11, 2019 at the Lafayette Family YMCA.

The event will include presentations from all five U.S. Service Academies with information about each academy and the admissions process.
