Elkhart veteran gets high school diploma


An Elkhart Veteran has finally received his High School diploma.

83-year-old James Friend got it at Tuesday night Elkhart Community School board meeting.

The Korean war vet entered the Navy at 17 in 1951.

He says he wanted to get the diploma after all these years because he thought it was something he was missing.

He says he was tickled to death when he was handed the diploma.
