Filed under: Daily News | Tags:,

Secretary of Defense Robert Gates will be at the Air Force Academy tomorrow, part of a farewell tour before he retires.

He will speak to the cadets at the Air Force Academy, and teach a couple of classes.

Last month, Gates was at West Point, the Army’s military college, telling them their future in the Army will be guided by a changing defense philosophy that aims for more flexibility.

Gates will retire this year. He was appointed by former President George Bush in 2007, after Donald Rumsfeld retired.
