Military veterans in Riverside Country who missed out on high school graduation because they were on active duty can apply for a diploma through a program known as "Operation Recognition". The program is open to people whose high school education was interrupted by military service in World War II, the Korean War or the Vietnam War.
"Operation Recognition" also awards diplomas to Japanese-American citizens who did not complete high school due to internment in a World War II relocation camp.
     More than 200 veterans have received high school diplomas through Operation Recognition since 2007.
     The 2011 ceremony will be November 9, 2011 at the Moreno Valley Conference and Recreation Center. To participate in the ceremony, application forms and supporting documentation must be received by Sept. 30, 2011.
     Applications are available online at www.rcoe.us/operationrecognition or can be requested by calling Tracey Rivas at 951-826-6570 or emailing her at trivas@rcoe.us.
