It has been 70 years since World War II veteran Lawrence Davis was in school in Buffalo in Putnam County. On Monday, he walked the halls once again and experienced a proud moment – receiving his high school diploma.

Davis marched with the Buffalo High School class of 2013 and received his degree at a graduation ceremony at the new Putnam County high school. At age 16, he left school and altered his birth certificate and enlisted in the U.S. Navy.

But Monday night the years melted away as he returned to receive his degree. Accompanying this story is the raw footage of Eyewitness News Reporter Katy Brown's interview with Davis.
