Borgstrom, Boyd - PFC
Marine Returns to Food Front
Ogden, Utah (AP)—Marine Pfc. Boyd Borgstrom, 23, veteran of south Pacific warfare, returned to Utah Friday to “pitch in” on the farm that has sent five fighting brothers—three were killed and the fourth is missing—to the world’s battle fronts.
His parents, Mr. and Mrs. Alben Borgstrom, farmers near Tremonton, had asked marine Corps Headquarters to release Boyd to help produce food for the war effort. He was granted an honorable discharge.
The marine said he was “glad” to be back and was surprised that Ogden city officials reporters and photographers awaited his arrival.
