President Biden has frequently recounted a story in which Senator J. Caleb Boggs nominated him to attend the United States Naval Academy in the 1960s during a debate where Boggs expressed regret for his decision. Biden shares this anecdote during speeches at military academies and to service members' families, emphasizing that he declined the nomination in high school. The story unfolds with Biden mentioning that he was nominated by Boggs, his Republican opponent in his first Senate race when discussing his regret about declining the Naval Academy nomination. He revisits this tale in various settings, highlighting how Boggs later expressed remorse during a debate for not having Biden attend the academy, suggesting Biden would not have been able to run for office if he had accepted the nomination. The anecdote has been a part of Biden's speeches since as early as 2010, where he initially mentioned Boggs had "considered" him for the academy.
