She said yes

Haley Holzwarth of Pittsburgh and David J. “D.J.” Custer of Salem Township were marching with the Clarion University ROTC unit in the Autumn Leaf Festival parade Oct. 5 in Clarion when D.J. suddenly broke ranks and pulled Haley toward their families along Main Street. The families witnessed D.J. propose marriage. The surrounding parade audience announced her answer. “She said ‘yes,’” the crowd cheered in unison. The newly engaged couple gathered congratulations from their families and then quickly deployed back to the parade.

She said ‘Yes!'
