It’s time once again for our Hometown Hero, brought to you by Keller Chevrolet and Batavia Downs gaming. This Week’s Hometown Hero is originally from Alden, NY. Serving the Air Force National Guard . It’s 21 year old Airman First Class Scott Aldinger.

Scott officially joined the Guard during his first year of college, after several years of a growing desire to serve his country. He swore in during December of 2013, and spent the summer and fall of 2014 in San Antonio,TX. He graduated basic with a marksmanship ribbon and was then off to technical school where he trained for the Security Forces. Scott was deployed overseas in July 2015, after spending a few months stationed at Niagara Falls Air Force Base. He just celebrated his 21st birthday overseas on September 10th! His family misses him dearly and can't wait for his safe return!

We want to say thank you to Scott for his service and to everyone who is serving our country and keeping us free. We are proud to call Scott Aldinger our Hometown Hero of the week.
