Receiving an appointment to any of the United States military academies is a high honor. Charlotte Catholic’s Ryan Manion has achieved even more – receiving appointments to both West Point and Annapolis!
Tuesday afternoon, Congressman Robert Pittenger called to congratulate Manion and invite him for an official visit in Washington, D.C.
“Hearing Ryan’s excitement at serving our Nation renews my hope in America’s future,” said Congressman Pittenger. “Receiving appointments to two military academies is quite rare, and I will be excited to watch and support his career.”
In his application to the Naval Academy, Manion wrote, “I am fortunate to live in a country that sacrifices for the safety of its own people, and therefore I feel obligated to reciprocate the protection and defense our Nation warrants.”
Ryan Manion is the son of Michael and Kelly Manion and lives in south Charlotte.
