(NBC) -

A man who left school to fight in World War Two finally receives his high school diploma.

He is 90 years old. His family invited him to a board meeting in Pennsylvania, where he thought he was going to lead the Pledge of Allegiance.

But instead, his grandson presented him with a diploma.

When he came home after World War II, he joined the labor force instead of finishing high school.

Getting the diploma was very big deal for him.
