C'mon Get Happy: WWII Vet Gets Degree 68 Years Later

 

There's a 96-year-old guy named Bob Barger, and he flew planes for the Navy in World War Two. 

After the war, he went back home to Toledo, Ohio and started taking classes at the University of Toledo. but he never finished up his degree because he needed to get a job to take care of his family.

Fast forward to earlier this year, when the school reviewed his transcripts . . . and they found he DID have enough credits to get an associate's degree, which wasn't offered back when he was in school.

So on Saturday, he got his diploma during Toledo's graduation ceremony . . . 68 years after he took his last class.
