(Richmond, IN)--A diploma will be handed out at Richmond High School Friday morning. But it’s not just any diploma…it’s a diploma earned by a Navy veteran 68 years ago. Bill Grimes left RHS in the middle of his junior year to serve as a mechanic in the Navy during the Korean War. 20 members of Grimes’ family will be on hand to watch him get his diploma. It will be a part of Veteran’s Day services that get underway at 9 o’clock Friday morning at the Tiernan Center.
