Halle, who quit school in Pennsylvania at age 13 to support his mother, said he resumed his studies in October "just to say I did it."

Most people have a hazy notion of the VA as hospitals where combat veterans recuperate from their wounds after war and clinics where impoverished veterans can get treatment.
