The Army will proceed with this year’s graduation ceremony at the US Military Academy in June at West Point, New York, amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, with President Donald Trump giving the 2020 commencement speech for cadets.

Secretary of the Army Ryan McCarthy said that after careful consideration, the Army is “putting the appropriate measures in place to respond to the COVID-19 crisis and to protect our Force, Cadets and Families.”
