Obama to speak at AFA graduation

Posted By on Mon, Mar 5, 2012 at 10:12 AM


President Barack Obama will be the speaker at the graduation of the Air Force Academy Class of 2012 on May 23.

The president usually rotates with the secretary of defense, Air Force secretary and vice president in giving the keynote address during the graduation ceremony, traditionally staged at Falcon Stadium.

"We're waiting on the announcement to come out," says Lt. Col. John Bryan, director of communications at the academy. "Yeah, that's been the game plan all along. It's our turn to get him in the rotation."

Since the academy hadn't yet disclosed officially that the president would speak, there was no immediate information as to how to obtain tickets other than a reference on the academy's website here about cadets being given as many as they like.
