ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) President Barack Obama is scheduled to speak at the U.S. Naval Academy's graduation.

The president's speech, his second to a graduating class at the academy, is set for Friday at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis.

About 1,000 midshipmen are scheduled to be commissioned as officers in either the Navy or the Marine Corps.

Obama gave his first speech to a graduating class at the academy in 2009. Obama spoke at the commissioning ceremony several months after winning election to his first term by defeating academy alumnus John McCain for the presidency.
