Huntsville student accepts military academy appointment

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Sen. Tommy Tuberville has announced that a student from Huntsville has accepted his appointment to the US Military Academy.

Gavin Comulada, a graduate of Whitesburg Christian Academy, was named as part of a group of students chosen to represent Alabama as the Class of 2026 at West Point.

Senator Tuberville said, “The desire to serve these exceptional young Alabamians ensures that the United States military remains the strongest fighting force in the world. Receiving an appointment in one of these military institutions is a great honor that requires a lot of hard work and sacrifice. I am proud of their determination to reach this point and know that they will continue to make our state and our country proud.

Candidates were nominated based on an extensive process that included completing the required ACT and SAT tests, a 500-word essay, three letters of recommendation, and official transcripts.

Gavin also released a statement saying, “I want to do something that matters. Something that can impact the world and those around me. As a nation, and individually as Americans, we need to all to our service men and women. There has always been much debate about whether or not America should be at war, but I believe in the simple statement that freedom never was and will never be free, but won by those willing to give their all for their country. Simply, if not me, then who?”

Gavin has been at Auburn University for the past school year. He will travel to West Point in June.
