Two names were missing on a list of graduates in 1943. But more than 70 years ago, a couple who had to put their future on hold during World War II, are able to finally say graduated from their first high school alma mater.
The story of George and Miko Kaihara isn't a mainstream one of lives delayed because of World War 2. The couple didn't get to graduate from Tustin Union High School in Tustin, California, because of going off to fight on the front lines. Rather, the couple, who were teenagers 72 years ago, were forced from their homes and into a Japanese-American internment camp, KABC reported.
