ClassphotoSeven San Bernardino County Veterans received high school diplomas during the 2013 Operation Recognition Veterans Diploma Project graduation ceremony on November 4, 2013. The project recognizes veterans from WWII, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.

 The California Education Code authorizes the granting of retroactive high school diplomas to eligible veterans, as well as those who were interned by federal order in WWII. 

The veterans and their families attended the ceremony made possible by the San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools and the County of San Bernardino Department of Veterans Affairs.

    1. Hi David,
      The Veterans Diploma Project is held every year. If you or someone you know qualifies, there is always next year. (Diplomas may be presented posthumously as well.) Contact the San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools’ office for more info.
