Mr. Moreno recounts stories from his father’s years of service he was told growing up, which ultimately inspired his action to
join the service as well.

“Manuel Frausto Moreno was born on October 13, 1917 and passed away October 18, 2001. He was born and raised on a ranch located off of Alameda in El Paso, TX. He had 8 brothers and sisters, he was the first to enlist in the family. He worked on the ranch to help put food on the table… then he heard about CC Camp and he went to go join, it’s like a training where they had to start around 1941 or 1942 … He was in Company E and you know, they were all Mexican-American and my dad was one of them…”

Mr. Moreno recalls memories of his father’s travels from CC Camp in El Paso to Massachusetts (photo in the snow), from Libya, North Africa to the Battle of Rapido River in Italy. Manuel Frausto Moreno was one of 27 men that returned from the Company E tour during WWII.
