the ECT loves our WWII Vets
June 4th 2012 – Marked the passing of WWII Veteran and long time Eagle County resident – Mr. Higinio Romero. Higinio was born November 8th 1921. Higinio served in the U.S. Army Air Corp 1943-45 (Italy) in the 456th Heavy Bomber Group. The 456th Group flew (among other bombers) the B-24 Liberator, and Higinio work on the Radio gear those bombers used during the Groups 249 sorties flown from Italy.
The ECT would like to recognize Mr. Romero’s exemplary service in WWII – with this exclusive EagleCountyTimes.Com video (1:57) from October 13th 2008 – where Eagle County Commissioner Sara Fisher presents Higinio with his award from our County.
