Better late…: Vietnam vet finally getting his HS diploma

REDMOND, Ore. – David Fair of La Pine joined the Army when he was 17. At the age of 18, he was deployed to Vietnam to serve in the war as a medic. And a high school diploma was something that never came his way — until now. Wednesday night, at the age of 66, he will be awarded an honorary high school diploma at the Ridgeview High School graduation, at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds in Redmond.
