Not so! Many WWII veterans returned to school after the war, some were even allowed to play school sports, even though they were considerably older than their classmates. Consequently, it WOULD have been possible for them to have graduated in 1948.

I agree with the lady from Tennessee. My father joined the Navy to serve his country at the age of 17. I don't know the exact year but I do know he served 4 years and when the war was over he went back to high school and graduated.
