Like so many American soldiers returning home from World War II, Bob Barger started working a new job and going to college.The university took a look at Barger's old school records because of a friendship he struck up with Haraz Ghanbari, the school's director of military and veteran affairs.Ghanbari later found out that Barger never graduated from the university, even though he took a full load of classes from 1947 to 1950 .The records showed Barger completed 83 credit hours – about 20 more than what's required for the associate's degree that he'll receive Saturday. University officials say they don't know of anyone older ever graduating from the school.
