SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – One veteran proves that it’s never too late to get your high school diploma.

Benjamin Spurlock Robinson is a Vietnam War veteran. He says it has taken 21 years to get his high school diploma.

“It appears that I started from the top first and worked my way down,” Robinson said.

After the ninth grade, Robinson went to war leaving his education behind.

“I’m a graduate of the Sergeants Major Academy, I’m also a graduate of the 3rd US Army NCO Academy – and now I am a graduate of high school,” Robinson said.

Robinson’s family was there to support him during the special ceremony on Tuesday.
