www.insidebayarea.com [cached]

SAN LEANDRO , As his girlfriend and his classmates listened to the bittersweet strains of "Pomp and Circumstance" in June 1945, Frank Goldsborough was on radar detail in Okinawa, working to detect Japanese bombers that might target American ships. After enlisting in the Marines at age 17, Goldsborough was a half-credit short of completing his graduation requirements at San Leandro High School.Although he had become an important part of United States history, he hadn't taken the course. Goldsborough was honorably discharged in 1946.But when he tried to go back to school, he said, "The lady in the office told me I was too old and too wise." "It was a complete shock," Goldsborough said.He said it never really mattered to him that he didn't have a diploma."After a while, it got so they never asked," he explained.But his wife, Arlene, begged to differ. "Almost every June, come graduation, they used to play 'Pomp and Circumstance,'" she said to him in her distinctive Bronx-meets-Boston Goldsborough, a longtime San Leandro resident and forklift mechanic who retired in 1993 from Newark-based Inland Container Corp., has had a nostalgic few weeks.In addition to the surprise commencement ceremony, he and Arlene celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary Sept. 1.A framed album cover of their song, "Always In My Heart," was mounted on the wall of their mobile home. It also has been 60 years since Frank returned to the United States from the Pacific and spent his discharge money on an engagement ring. Goldsborough and his buddies from Marine Air Warning Squadron 7 , "The Lucky 7," as they were known , have held reunions every year or two.Next week, the Goldsboroughs head to Branson, Mo., for the next one. He's sure to tell them about his birthday present.
