WWII Vet Graduates High School

In 1940, Roland Martinaeu dropped out of school to serve in the Navy. He was a about to be a junior in high school, but World War II had broken out, and Roland wanted to serve his country. When the war was over, Roland returned home to Boston, got a job, got married, started a family...and never finished school.

Roland recently confided to his barber that his one regret was not finishing school. Well, the barber, Donna Salvi, got to work seeing what Roland needed to do to make his wish a reality. Now, Roland is a proud graduate! He walked in his commencement ceremony last weekend, and even got to share some wisdom with his fellow (much younger) graduates!

Congratulations, Mr. Martineau!
