WASHINGTON (AP) - Former CIA director David Petraeus is making his first public speech since resigning in November over an extramarital affair.

The former four-star general is speaking Tuesday night at a University of Southern California event honoring the military.

A prepared text of his speech, obtained by The New York Times, indicates Petraeus will apologize for the affair with his former biographer, Paula Broadwell. Petraeus is expected to acknowledge that he's "regarded in a different light now" than he was a year ago and that he'll try to make amends and move forward as best he can.
