WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama plans to deliver the commencement address to the U.S. Air Force Academy, his fourth service academy graduation speech in four years.

Since 2009, Obama has delivered commencement addresses at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., and the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, Conn.
