West Point officials say the top U.S. military officer will speak at its commencement ceremony next month.
The U.S. Military Academy announced Friday that General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, will be the commencement speaker for the Class of 2015 on May 23. Dempsey is a member of the Class of 1974. President Barack Obama delivered the commencement address at West Point last year, during which he laid out his foreign policy vision. Obama this May will deliver the commencement address at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut.
