ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A representative from Albany's Marine Base will be among an elite group traveling to Washington this week to meet with the President and Congress.

The Senate Youth Program selects two top students from each state to go to Washington to see Congress in action and meet with the Department of Defense and Commander in Chief.

Lt. Caleb Eames was selected as one of only 15 Department of Defense employees to act as military mentors to the students.

Eames will leave early Wednesday for Washington and is interested to hear what kind of questions the students will ask. 

"The students are going to have an opportunity to ask questions of everybody, Congressmen, even of the President and definitely look forward to hearing their questions, you know today's youth is really our future and so time invested in them is really invaluable," said Eames.

The trip is expected to last two weeks. Georgia's student representatives are from Cherokee and Glynn Counties.
