My sincere condolences to MSgt Bertini’s family; Any Marine that was in A Company during that time, knew of the Company Gunny and I will always remember him because of his guidance, his leadership, and his sense of humor.  I had the pleasure of getting to know him during my time in P.I. with A Company, I conducted his pack-out as a Military Customs Inspector and had the distinct pleasure of discovering many things about the Gunny that would normally not have been known because of our rank differences.  And, we met up at Pendleton years later where we shared some laughs together on a few occasions. Semper Fidelis “Gunny”
