Senator Menendez Congratulates Gabriela Barrera Of Lodi On Appointment To West Point

U.S. Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) today congratulated Gabriela Barrera of Lodi on her appointment to the United States Military Academy at West Point. Barrera, who attends the Academy For Advancement of Science and Technology in Bergen county, was one of 15 students appointed to United States military academies welcomed by the Senator along with their families to a special reception in the Newark office.

“Gabriela is a remarkable young woman in whom the U.S. Army sees enormous promise, and I am very proud to have nominated her to the United States Military Academy at West Point,” said Senator Menendez. “Gabriela and all of New Jersey’s young people who will enroll in our nation’s military academies possess exceptional talents and abilities. But what makes me most proud is their personal choice to use their abilities in the service of their country. I am grateful to all of them for their sense of duty as Americans, and wish them God’s speed as they set off to meet the challenges ahead.”
