English: Annapolis, Md. (May 27, 2005) - A newly commissioned Ensign displays a U.S. Naval Academy ring in the moments prior to the "hat toss" during the class of 2005 Graduation and Commissioning Ceremony. The “hat toss,” now a traditional ending to the ceremony, originated at the Naval Academy in 1912. This “hat toss” has since become a symbolic and visual end to the four-year program. Nine hundred-seventy six Midshipmen graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy and became commissioned officers in the U.S. Military. President George W. Bush delivered the commencement address and personally greeted each graduate during the ceremony. The men and women of the graduating class were sworn into the Navy as Ensigns or into the Marine Corps as Second Lieutenants. U.S. Navy photo by Damon J. Moritz (RELEASED)
