Bill To Let High Schools Award Early-Enlist Michigan Vietnam Vets Diplomas
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Legislation nearing the desk of Gov. Rick Snyder would let high schools award diplomas to Vietnam War-era veterans who enlisted or were drafted before graduating.
The Senate is expected to give final approval to the legislation today before it goes to the governor.
Supporters say the move would be an expression of gratitude to Vietnam veterans for their service. The bill's sponsor is Republican Sen. Judy Emmons of Sheridan.
