U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) welcomed Ryan Patrick Andrieux to Washington to congratulate him on his appointment to the U.S. Air Force Academy.
At a breakfast in the U.S. Capitol, Sen. Toomey hosted Ryan and other students from Pennsylvania who have been appointed to our nation’s military service academies.
A native of Birdsboro, Pa., Ryan is the son of Joseph and Sabrina Andrieux. A graduate of Exeter Township Senior High School, he was a member of the National Honor Society and an Advanced Placement Scholar. He also participated in his school’s concert and marching band.
“I am so proud of Ryan for choosing to serve our country,” said Sen. Toomey. “Just a few weeks ago, he was wearing a cap and gown. A few weeks from now, he will be wearing the uniform of our nation’s military. Congratulations to him and may God bless him and all our service men and women.”
Sen. Toomey’s office received a total of 408 applications from Pennsylvania students for the service academies – the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, N.Y.
Sen. Toomey nominated 40 of those students and 17 received appointments.
