Sunset review at Coast Guard Academy
New London — Members of the corps of cadets at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy participate in the annual Sunset Review on Sunday, May 16, 2021 on the academy's Washington Parade Field.
Because of the loosening of COVID-19 restrictions, the entire corps of cadets participated in a review for the first time in more than a year, and visitors were allowed.
The Sunset Review is just one of the regimental reviews that cadets participate in that serve to develop poise, confidence, speaking skills, leadership and teamwork.
President Joe Biden is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at the academy's graduation ceremonies on Wednesday.
