Considering this and the truth that Ford’s Indy was noticed with dots on his face, it appears to be like like he’ll be de-aged for some flashbacks.

However, the 1957 set Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull did briefly point out that he was a battle hero in the struggle in opposition to Hitler.
