SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – A bill to give Vietnam veterans high school diplomas will be discussed in the Senate. Senate Bill 99 would allow school boards to award honorably discharged Vietnam veterans whose service prevented them from graduating.

There is already a similar rule for WWI and Korean veterans. If passed, the bill would go into effect in July.
