Angelo Demos enlisted to serve when he was 18 years old.

Now at age 93, he reflects on his duty’s during World War II.

“I used to go 100 yards ahead of the company, on the scout tour, to see if any enemy soldiers were ahead of us,” Demos said.

Demos along with 11 other World War II vets gathered to be recognized at the annual appreciation dinner.

The group shared a meal and swapped stories with other veterans and their families.
