"In case you haven’t noticed, we have become a lot stronger lately. A lot. We are not going to apologize for America. We are going to stand up for America. No more apologies," Trump said in his speech./VCG Photo

In the three hours spent under a cloudless sky, underclassmen of the USNA, who were required to attend the ceremony, tried to find a moment to sneak in a quick snooze. /VCG Photo
