 Nominate a Vet for Recognition, Diploma

As Veterans Day approaches, it's the perfect time to honor a hero who couldn't finish high school because of war through the Operation Recognition program. 

Through Operation Recognition, San Diego County residents may qualify for an honorary high school diploma from the San Diego County Board of Education. Veterans of World War II, the Korean War, and Vietnam are eligible along with people who were detained in internment camps during World War II.

 Visit SDCOE's Operation Recognition page for more information and bios of some of the honorees.
