Korean War vets gets diploma, points to benefit
June 20, 2013 07:38 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tullahoma native William Milton Duncan now has his high school diploma. Duncan had worked for a few years in the 1940s to help his family and was preparing to enter high school when he was drafted for the Korean War.
He was honorably discharged at the rank of corporal and went to work in manufacturing, retiring two years ago at the age of 82.
Duncan now lives in Nashville. He received his diploma Wednesday from Veterans Affairs Commissioner Many-Bears Grinder, Education Commissioner Kevin Huffman and Sen. Douglas Henry.
Duncan said getting his diploma was not about recognition, but was a way to raise awareness about a little known state benefit. The provision grants diplomas to veterans who had to forego education for military service.
