Vice President scheduled to speak at Coast Guard Academy Commencement Exercises

Coast Guard Academy logoNEW LONDON, Conn. – The U.S. Coast Guard Academy is preparing to host Vice President Mike Pence, who is scheduled to deliver the keynote address at graduation ceremonies here, Wednesday, May 23.

The 137th Commencement Exercises are scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. on Cadet Memorial Field. This event is not open to the public.

The Vice President traditionally addresses the graduating class at one of the federal service academies on a rotating basis. President Trump served as the Academy’s Commencement speaker last year. This will be the first time that the Vice President has visited the Academy in his present position.

“It’s a great honor for us to host the Vice President and to have him present commissions to the members of the graduating class,” said Academy Superintendent Rear Adm. James E. Rendón. “This is a wonderful opportunity to highlight our Academy and recognize our newest leaders for the service they will render to our Coast Guard and the nation.”

Inclement weather plans call for the graduation to be held in Leamy Hall Auditorium, where seating will be limited.
