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.  Higinio also served at the local VFW’s Post (10721) Commander from 1985-86.

Thank you Mr. Romero for your military service to our great nation!
