  • Description

    Titles read: "AMERICAN CADETS GRADUATE".

    Wantico, Virginia, United States of America.

    Several shots show "new leatherneck lieutenants of the American Navy" passing out at their graduation ceremony. The cadets walk up to a stage and receive their diplomas from General Holcombe, Commandant of the United States Marine Corps. He reads them a message from President Roosevelt (we don't get to hear it!). The young men raise their hands to take an oath.
