AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden will be the guest speaker at the Air Force Academy graduation Wednesday.

Biden’s appearance marks his second visit to the academy. He also addressed cadets at the 2009 graduation.

About 1,000 cadets are expected to get their diplomas and be commissioned as second lieutenants at the graduation, which will be held at Falcon Stadium on the academy campus north of Colorado Springs.

President Barack Obama was the 2012 speaker.
