America’s Veterans sacrifice so much to protect our freedom—for many of those who served in their youth, that includes the chance to receive a high school diploma. Operation Recognition is a program that honors Veterans of World War II, Korea and Vietnam by granting them high school diplomas. It’s a belated gesture of our lasting respect and appreciation for their service and commitment to our nation. Tom Zayas is a Korean War Veteran who was among the honorees at this month’s ceremony hosted by the Sacramento Board of Education. He said “Now I can show my buddies that graduated 66 years ago. I can tell them I graduated too.”

Contact your local school district for eligibility requirements and instructions to nominate a Veteran for Operation Recognition.
