Ralph Bertleson was the 3rd Platoon Cmdr. for Kilo 3/26 in 1969. I did not know Ralph until our first reunion in 1999 at Jacksonville, Florida. He was a quiet type of guy, but after getting to know him you couldn't help but love him. Ralph was interesting to talk to and had a laid back attitude. After Vietnam he became a Fire Chief where he worked until his retirement a few years back. At the reunion last year, in Bransen, Missouri, everyone was wondering where he was
at ? To our dismay we later found out that Ralph had passed away in 2003. We will never forget what a kind, caring and wonderful Marine he was. He was certainly one of a kind. All of us miss you Ralph. God Bless.
