90-year-old veteran set to graduate college
CHARLOTTE, NC -- A 90-year-old World War II veteran who lives in Charlotte is about to
graduate college for the very first time.
Robert Winters has been taking classes at Central Piedmont Community College for years, and
has now finally reached his dream of earning his diploma.
This has been a long time coming, Robert said. I dropped out of high school -- World War II --
to join the Navy.
He spent the next 25 years serving the United States, in World War II, Korea and Vietnam wars
A man who crossed the world, who fought our nations greatest battles, is ready now to cross the
stage -- this time with a cap and gown.

they say you change jobs 5 times before a hundred after graduating college :)
I am happy for him.
Those tats don’t look like 60 year old navy tattoos.
Course he don’t look a day over 70 himself.
I wonder if they tries to indoctrinate him into “progressive ideals”. “Now Robert repeat after me Islamo-Nazism is good, Trump is evil, the USA is evil, capitalism is evil, the constitution must be destroyed, borders must be eliminated, multi-culturalism is a shiny rainbow”
Just what I was thinking, I know guys in their 50s who look older than that guy.
Course he dont look a day over 70 himself.
He may not have been a day over 70 when that photo was taken.
We just don’t know.
Guess he’ll move back in with his parents now. (little Jay Leno joke)
Trayvon got one too!
Degree or no degree that seems to be happening regularly now days.
