World War II vet gets high school diploma after 71 years

first_img Do you see a typo or an error? Let us know. (CNN) It’s never too late to graduate.That’s the lesson World War II veteran Milton Mockerman shared with the Kalkaska High School class of 2017 with whom he graduated on Saturday.Mockerman, 89, received an honorary diploma from the school and participated in its graduation ceremony in Kalkaska, Michigan, fulfilling his lifelong dream of earning a high school degree — 71 years later than expected.Milton Mockerman served in the Navy during World War II. Photo via CNN.“We got a phone call from Milton Mockerman wondering if there were any classes he could take to finish his graduation,” Kalkaska High School Principal John Sattler told CNN.Sattler soon learned that Mockerman had forged his birth certificate and left high school early to join the Navy during World War II. After serving in the Navy for two and a half years, Mockerman returned home to Michigan and needed to find work. He found a few odd jobs before going to work on the railroad for 31 years.After hearing Mockerman’s story, Sattler and his secretary wanted to help the military vet accomplish his goal. They went to the board of education to ask if they could award him an honorary diploma, and the board voted unanimously to do so.“Because of his years of service in the military, we … gave him an honorary diploma,” Sattler said.Before graduating with the senior class, Mockerman spoke to a few of the high school history classes about his experiences in the war.At the graduation ceremony, Mockerman received his honorary degree and said a few words to the graduating seniors.Milton Mockerman, left, at the graduation ceremony at Kalkaska High School. Photo via CNN.I didn’t know what to say, so I just kind of told them, ‘Well, you’ve proved to me today that this high school graduating class must be smarter than I am,’” Mockerman told CNN. “Because what they took four years to do, it took me 71 years to come to that conclusion.”Mark Mockerman, Milton’s son, attended the graduation ceremony.“It was one of the greatest things I’ve seen,” Mark Mockerman told CNN. “My dad hasn’t had a lot of notoriety, and he deserves it, because he’s been the kind of dad that everyone should have had. He’s always there for me.” Published: May 30, 2017 5:30 PM EDT World War II vet gets high school diploma after 71 years SHARElast_img read more

Rivals in DR Congo blame each other for pre-election violence

Rivals in DR Congo blame each other for pre-election violence

first_imgRenewed violence in DR Congo interrupts Ebola care DR Congo Massacre DR Congo army donates vehicles for December electioncenter_img On Monday, three weeks before a crucial Congo presidential vote, opponents and supporters of Democratic Republic of Congo President Joseph Kabila traded accusations of electoral violence.The pro-Kabila coalition said opposition supporters attacked a march over the weekend, injuring dozens while opposition leader Felix Tshisekedi’s UDPS party said police detained more than 40 of his supporters in 48 hours.Kabila’s FCC coalition said “young delinquents, drug addicts who are Union for Democracy and Social Progress (UDPS) supporters” attacked a march for Ramazani Shadary supporters on Saturday in Mbuji Mayi in Eastern Kasai province.“We have 35 seriously injured and with fractures,” an FCC statement said.East Kasai governor Alphonse Ngoyi Kasanji on Monday revealed there were 15 wounded treated at a local hospital.A source at Tshisekedi’s UDPS party said police encircled its headquarters in Mbuji Mayi between Sunday night and Monday morning and detained dozens of his supporters over the weekend.“Around 20 of our activists were arrested on Saturday and are still in police custody. One of our parliamentary candidates is still reported missing,” regional UDPS representative Denis Kalombo told AFP.Vincent Ngoyi, a local official, said police had been deployed to the UDPS headquarters in the region for “security reasons” because they were responsible for unrest on Saturday.Tens of thousands of supporters turned out to welcome Tshisekedi, whose father Etienne was the face of DRC opposition for decades, as he returned to Kinshasa last month to kick off his campaign to replace Kabila.Rich in diamonds, the Kasai region was caught up in militia violence between September 2016 and mid-2017 after a powerful local chieftain was killed by security forces.Around 3 000 people died in the violence and 1.4 million more were displaced by fighting.Election preparations are also being tested in eastern DR Congo, where the army is fighting militant and inter-ethnic violence and dealing with a deadly Ebola outbreak.Western powers are closely watching the December 23 election in the mineral-wealthy former Belgian colony that has never seen a peaceful transition of power since its 1960 independence.Under international pressure, Kabila agreed to step aside, but critics worry he will engineer a victory for his handpicked successor, former interior minister Emmanuel Ramazani Shadary.Relatedlast_img read more
