(IDAHO FALLS, ID) – A Korean War veteran will receive his high school diploma next month. 79-year-old Kenneth Thomas left Bonneville High School early in 1952 to enlist in the Marine Corps.  Thomas went on to earn his GED and raised seven children with his wife, but always regretted not graduating. After reviewing Thomas’ records, school administrators learned that Thomas had already done everything he needed to graduate. Thomas will talk across the stage at Thunder Stadium May 25
