Three veterans got some special recognition and a huge surprise at their alma-mater Friday at Kenmore West High School. This year, members of the Class of 1955 during joined the school's homecoming assembly, and that's when Kenneth Bellinger, Bradley Schick, and Paul Wischerath got the surprise of a lifetime.
The three men all enlisted in the United States Air Force before they could walk down the aisle in 1955 for graduation at Kenmore West. Unknown to the three veterans, and to an auditorium filled with students, the men were each presented with a high school diploma. After all these years, it still brought these veterans to tears.
