Corbett Signs Bill Honoring Medal of Honor Recipient

HARRISBURG – Gov. Tom Corbett has signed into law Senate Bill 199, which designates a 12-mile section of Interstate 78 in Berks County as the Chief Master Sgt. Richard L. Etchberger Memorial Highway.

Etchberger of Hamburg died in March 1968 while performing secret operations in Laos. Posthumously, the Air Force made him a chief master sergeant, and he was named a Medal of Honor recipient last year.
