SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A ceremony at Naval Base San Diego Friday honored members of the military who received college degrees this year.
Friday's event was for people from all branches of the military who missed their school's graduation ceremony because they were on active duty. More than 180 military members walked across the stage to receive their associates, bachelors, masters or doctorates.
"To actually have it here and have the military service members come and have a ceremony that's just for them… it's a great opportunity," USMC Major Donald Hudson said.
More than 60 educational institutions were represented at Friday's ceremony.
