Vietnam vet, grand-niece get diplomas together


“But be careful, Harry is not to be confused with his twin brother, Larry Denton, who also works for ELCS.”

Section 305 of the New York State Education Law created Operation Recognition to commemorate the dedication and sacrifice of World War II, Korean and Vietnam veterans who left school before graduation, either by voluntary service or draft.

“Mr. Denton,” Osborne continued, “our community and our country thanks you for your service and sacrifice in defense of this great nation. 

“On behalf of Elizabethtown-Lewis Central School, I am very honored to award this high-school diploma to Harry Robert Denton.” 

A sustained standing ovation followed.
