World War II Veteran gets high school diploma at age 100

A 100-year-old World War II Veteran can finally say he’s a high school graduate.

George Hulka Junior only made it to the eighth grade, and was drafted in 1941.

Saturday, Hulka’s great-grandson presented him with an honorary high school diploma.

It was also his great-grandson’s graduation day.

Hulka served as a combat infantryman in the army.

He was in the third wave of the D-Day invasion at Normandy.

After he came home from the service, he was busy raising a family.

Hulka’s family says he was very excited to receive a diploma, and had never expected this day would come.
