That's because there is no one year gap.
Kirk had been in a coma for two weeks, that's all we know. The "nearly one year ago" line in Kirk's speech is referring to the events of the first movie, he then continues talking about how Pike made him Captain and how he took his oath and only now he understood what that really meant.
Edit: I know it wouldn't make sense to honor the people who died in the first movie, but that's the way I understood this. I might be wrong, though ...
