Military Academies Line Up Graduation Speakers
The US military academies appear to have hammered out their graduation speakers for this year:
- President Obama will reportedly address the US Coast Guard Academy graduation.
- Secretary of Defense Robert Gates will take the US Naval Academy at Annapolis.
- Secretary of the Air Force Michael Donley will speak at USAFA’s graduation.
- CJCS Admiral Mike Mullen will address the US Military Academy at West Point.
The top military leadership speaks at the military academy graduations on a rotating basis. For those keeping count, Obama has already spoken at Annapolis, West Point, and now the Coast Guard academy, so if tradition holds he will address USAFA next year.
