President Joe Biden delivered an address to U.S. Coast Guard Academy graduates in New London Wednesday.
The president told the cadets that what they achieved the past four years embodies the Coast Guard's creed "always ready."
Biden told the cadets they should always take time to reflect on their hard work, especially what they have accomplished the past year through the pandemic.
Biden delivered the keynote speech to cadets once before back when he was vice president in the Obama administration.
Watch the address below.
Around 240 cadets graduated in the class, and the ceremony was closed to the public.
Officials say due to COVID-19, fewer guests were allowed at the ceremony, and those in attendance had to provide proof of vaccination or a negative test result.
