The Jemez Pueblo is holding a special graduation ceremony for World War II veterans who never had the chance to get their diplomas.

The governor says 53 men and two women from the pueblo were called to duty during World War II and were unable to complete their education after returning home.

Saturday they will be presented with honorary high school diplomas.

Three who have already passed on will be recognized posthumously.
