Dozens of high school students from across the state were in Hattiesburg Saturday morning to learn about attending the nation's military academies.
This annual Academy Day at the University of Southern Mississippi was hosted by Congressman Steven Palazzo.
As part of the event, students interested in attending a service academy met one-on-one with academy representatives, along with got the chance to hear from respective members in their own fields.
Advice given to students was simple...get started right away if you're thinking about applying, if you wait until you are a senior, it's too late.
