No one thought SHE could do it – the most heartwarming story you’ll read this week!
There is a reason we call the WWII generation, the Greatest Generation.
Even after so many years, they are still achieving their dreams. One 99-year-old veteran served her country proudly.
She went on to work hard as a teacher and a single mother. Yet despite all she’s done, there was one achievement she hadn’t earned.
Elizabeth Barker Johnson, a 99-year-old World War II veteran, finally accepted her college diploma 70 years after graduating from college. NBC’s Tammy Leitner reports for TODAY.
Here is a story to inspire all of us. Elizabeth Barker Johnson, at age 99, accepted her college diploma 70 years after graduating college.
The woman, who served in the Army during WWII, was unable to attend her first graduation ceremony because she was working.
She went on to teach for many years and raise a family.
During WWII, she served overseas in the only all-female, all-black regimen. Those brave women delivered three years of backed up mail to soldiers across Europe.
This woman is a testimony that, no matter how old you are, you can keep moving and reach your goals.
It serves as a reminder to younger generations, who seem to give up at a drop of a hat!
Let Johnson be your inspiration for today. If she can get her diploma at 99, what can’t you do?
