President Barack Obama today delivered the commencement address at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. He took the opportunity not only to bestow words of wisdom, but to lay out his foreign policy vision. WAMC’s Hudson Valley Bureau Chief Allison Dunne was at the president’s third visit to New York in as many weeks.
1,064 cadets received diplomas after listening to President Obama deliver the graduation speech.
“You are the first class to graduate since 9/11 who may not be sent into combat in Iraq or Afghanistan,” President Obama said.
