SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. -- A 100-year-old Army veteran of World War II is finally getting his high school diploma -- as is his great-grandson.
George Hulka Jr. made it to eighth grade at a one-room schoolhouse and worked on his family's dairy farm in the upstate New York town of Saratoga before being drafted ahead of the Pearl Harbor attack in 1941.
He went on to fight as a rifleman from North Africa to Germany, receiving a Bronze Star and several other medals.
