About the Author
On August, George Demos’ family provided a Hawaiian Luau party at his home for USC alumni, family, and friends. About 100 people attended and all had a wonderful time! There was dinner and dancing. The Hawaiian dancers performed (dancing and singing with wonderful music).
George enlisted into the army at the age of 17, at the tail end of WWII and was in the 187 Regimental Combat Team 11th Airborne Division. The division was preparing to parachute into Japan when the war ended. He spent 2 years in the occupation forces in Sapporo, Hakkaido, Japan. He returned to the states and continued to serve in the active reserve for 30 years. He retired as a Colonel and Commander of a Medical Brigade.
He earned his Ph.D. from USC in Counseling and Clinical Psychology. He taught at Cal. State University, Long Beach, and was professor of counseling for 30 years. It has been a rich life and am thankful for my longevity. Aloha and fight on!
In addition, George is also a Vice President and Major General in the US Service Command of America, a disaster relief organization that helps in disasters worldwide. George went with a team of members to help with the Thailand tsunami and to Houston Texas to assist with Hurricane Katrina and helped with many other catastrophic events throughout the United States.
George is President and CEO of the PTSD clinics that help US veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
