>Here is what TEC 28.0251 says:
>
>§ 28.0251. HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA FOR CERTAIN VETERANS. (a)
>Notwithstanding any other provision of this code, a school district
>may issue a high school diploma to a person who:
>   (1) is an honorably discharged member of the armed
>forces of the United States;
>   (2) was scheduled to graduate from high school after
>1940 and before 1975; and
>   (3) left high school before graduation to serve in
>World War II, the Korean War, or the Vietnam War.
>  (b) A school district may issue a diploma to a person
>otherwise eligible under Subsection (a) notwithstanding the fact
>that the person holds a high school equivalency certificate or is
>deceased.
>  (c) The commissioner by rule shall adopt a form for a
>diploma application to be used by a veteran or a person acting on
>behalf of a deceased veteran under this section. The commissioner
>shall specify acceptable evidence of eligibility for a diploma
>under this section.
>
>Added by Acts 2001, 77th Leg., ch. 187, § 1, eff. May 19, 2001.
>Amended by Acts 2005, 79th Leg., ch. 540, § 1, eff. June 17,
>2005.
>
>It sounds to me like the veteran has to go to their high school to 
>initiate this and that it would be through the Commissioner of the 
>Texas Education Agency. I searched their website and can't find any 
>kind of form. It doesn't sound to me like it authorizes the diploma for 
>Iraq or Afghanistan veterans since that is more recent than 1975...
