AIR FORCE ACADEMY — The Air Force Academy has announced the date of the 2020 graduation.

The event will be held on April 18, six weeks ahead of schedule. The Academy said this date was chosen to allow the class of 2020 to celebrate together while ensuring their health and safety by adhering to CDC and Department of Defense guidelines.

Family, friends, and the public will not be able to attend the event, but will be able to live stream it in its entirety.

"I have invited the Class of 2020 to help the staff design their graduation ceremony and they will do this with the same care for military tradition and the Academy's legacy as they've done leading other world-class Academy events," said US Air Force Academy Superintendent Lieutenant General Jay Silveria.

Further details on the event will be released by the Academy at a later date.
