Technology takes proud Grandfather to West Point graduation

West Point, United States Military Academy

Technology saved the day for one proud grandfather in Quincy.

Dick Knoblauch was unable to attend his grandson's graduation from the United States Military Academy. But that wouldn't stop him from seeing it.

Knoblauch was able to watch the ceremony stream live over the internet.

His grandson is the first of two grandchildren expected to graduate from the academy.

"I said to my daughter "I want to go", and she said you can't because of your ankle. And so I said, okay, set this up, little did i know it was going to be this," Knoblauch said.

Both of Knoblauch's grandsons attended Quincy Notre Dame.
