90-year-old WWII veteran received honorary degree

World

It was years in the making for World War Two veteran Walt Raebel, who was presented with an honorary degree from Concordia University on Saturday.

The 90-year-old was forced to drop out of college twice. Once so he could serve in world war two, then again after his father passed away.

He was greeted to a standing ovation after accepting his diploma.
