LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- - Michigan Vietnam veterans who failed to finish high school because of the war could receive their diplomas under legislation in the state Senate.
The Veterans, Military and Homeland Security Committee is expected to take up the legislation Tuesday.
The bill would allow high school boards to award diplomas to Vietnam veterans aged 65 and older.
Michigan law already allows World War II and Korean War veterans to get diplomas.
Republican Sen. Judy Emmons of Sheridan is the bill's sponsor. She says in a statement that "it may seem like a small thing, but to our veterans and their families it is an important acknowledgement of everything they gave up so we could remain free."
