Jack Fletcher was in his senior year of high school in Spur, Texas, when World War II broke out. Graduation would have to wait—70 years, as it turned out.
Fletcher traveled the world after the war and now lives in Australia, but a special ceremony brought him back as an honorary graduate of the Spur High School Class of 2012, NBC station KCBD of Lubbock reported.
“I had to look to make sure they put a certificate in there,” he laughed after the graduation ceremony. “I was afraid they were kidding me!”
