President Biden To Give Commencement Address At US Coast Guard Academy

President Joe Biden will deliver the keynote address to this year's graduating class of Coast Guard Academy cadets. The ceremony is May 19 on the campus in New London. The number of people allowed to attend will be much lower than normal, because of the pandemic. Biden spoke at a Coast Guard Academy graduation once before, when he was Vice President in 2013. Presidents give speeches to the U.S. Military academies on a rotating basis. Last year's Coast Guard Academy ceremony was held virtually because of the pandemic.
