Operation Recognition: Attention Veterans

Did you miss graduating from High School due to entering the military service in World War ll, the Korean Conflict or the Vietnam War?

YOU MAY BE ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE YOUR HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA

What is Operation Recognition?
Operation Recognition is a program established in 1999 to recognize and honor eligible veterans of WWII, the Korean Conflict, and the Vietnam War by awarding them with their high school diplomas if they were deployed before graduating.

Eligibility:
Any Veteran who received an honorable discharge for service in the Armed Forces of the United States of America between the dates of September 16, 1940 thru May 7, 1975.

Applicants:

Eligible veterans who served
Veterans who received their GEO
Veteran, guardian, or family member on behalf of a disabled or deceased veteran

 

Application Process:
An application for the diploma will need to be obtained from the participating state or school district to which the veteran is applying. The Veteran Advocate (listed below) can help with that process. A copy of the DD-214 must be attached to all applications. If the request is for a deceased veteran, a copy of the death certificate must also be attached.
