COLUMBUS, OH – Today, U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) delivered remarks at his reception to congratulate the Class of 2019 Service Academy nominees and their families.  He also thanked the Adjutant General of Ohio, Major General Harris, for hosting the ceremony at the Ohio National Guard Headquarters, as well as the Service Academy Review Board members who volunteered time and energy to assist in selecting the very best nominees.
