4 veterans receive high school diplomas almost 70 years after leaving to join military

In contrast, veterans make a lot of sacrifices when they enlist in the military But sometimes, there are ways to make up for those lost life experiences.

In 1956, 4 young men from Springdale High School had to miss their high school graduation.
Air Force Veteran Carl Stults, Army Veteran Bobby Burke, Air Force Veteran Charles Leroy Moon, and Air Force Veteran Bob Self were all students at Springdale once upon a time.

But by the time of their senior year, they had already decided that they were going to go far away from their hometown.

They enrolled in the military. They took GED tests before graduation to enlist, and then they jetted off to far away places before they could walk and shake hands with their principal.

They began careers in the military, but they always felt like something was missing.

Moon, Burke, Self, and Stults all had the chance to travel to places for work that they otherwise would not have been able to.

They went to countries like the Philippines and Hong Kong, and learned so much about the world.

But they never forgot their roots, and eventually, they all returned home to Springdale, Arkansas.

There, they continued to live their lives, but they still never got their diplomas.

Now in retirement, the four men get together at a cafe in their hometown.

That’s where some present-day Springdale High School teachers first met them.

At the Wagon Wheel Cafe, the four veterans were getting together, when they ran into a group of Springdale teachers.
