Late for the prom...

First heard this story this morning before work, just found this report:

Fashionably Late: 84-Year-Old World War II Veteran Finally Makes it to High School Prom

Smith was drafted into military service 1943, before he could finish high school. He returned home after World War II but never got his high school diploma.
Smith said this prom wasn't just for him. He said it was also for all the other soldiers who couldn't make it to their own.

According to the radio report this morning, his wife was his date ;-)
