World War II veteran

At right, Allen E. Demi, 95. The left photo shows Demi as yeoman second class, U.S. Navy. Originally from Clearfield, Pennsylvania, Demi now lives in Hollidaysburg Veterans Home. "Fighting for our country was our duty, but it was my honor," said Demi. He loves to occupy his time in the fall and winter watching Penn State football and wrestling. At age 85 he was able to make the trip to Happy Valley to see a game in person. In addition to being a die-hard football and wrestling fan, he is an even bigger and prouder fan of his family, especially two of his great-granddaughters, Gia Golder, currently a junior at Penn State, and Macy Golder, who is a 2013 Penn State graduate.
