Alford Borchelt from Indianapolis, Indiana
Indy Honor Flight

Born during the Depression and raised on a farm Al says he had a great life thanks to his parents.  He graduated high school at the age of 17.  He came to the big city of Indianapolis as a naive young man trying to make good.  Got scammed several times but survived.  He got married at age 20 in 1951 and was drafted into the Army in 1956. He did his two years and went to work as a civilian but decided to enlist into the Air Force in 1956 from where he retired at age 47 after 26 years of service.  He was recognized from the Pentagon with his Third Commendation Medal.   He states he has lived a great life with not much left on his bucket list but to take this honor flight. Lets let him enjoy this with his brother!
