This is Richard Jordan for Missouri Capital Caucus.

A day after Veteran's Day, Governor Bob Holden awards honorary high school diplomas to three Missouri veterans.

It's all part of a new program approved by the state legislature called Operation Recognition.

It gives those who dropped out of a school to serve in the armed forces a chance to get their diploma.

The governor spoke at the ceremony in the Capitol Rotunda on Monday.
