ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- A White House official tells a Maryland news outlet that Vice President Kamala Harris will deliver the keynote address at the Naval Academy’s commissioning ceremony.

The Capital reported Friday that Harris is expected to give the speech May 28 during the in-person, limited capacity ceremony in Annapolis.

The ceremony will take place at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.

It marks the transition from midshipman to commissioned officer for honorees.

The Capital says that historically, the speaker rotates between the vice president, president and the secretary of defense.

As vice president, President Joe Biden gave speeches in 2015 and 2010.
