Michael Bertha graduates from Military Academy
Michael L. Bertha, son of Ron and Pam Bertha of Springfield, VA, and grandson of Miriam C. Bertha formerly of Mount Oliver, has graduated from the US Military Academy at West Point.
Michael received a Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology and was commissioned a lieutenant in the US Army. He also received the US Army Military Outstanding Volunteer Service Medal due to the extraordinary time he committed to the youth of his church, sports teams and Boy Scouts during his four-year tenure at West Point.
Lt. Bertha is currently attending the Basic Officer Leadership Course for Artillery Officers at Fort Sill, OK. After Ranger School next spring, he will be assigned to his first unit in the 10th Infantry (Mountain) Division at Fort Drum, NY.
Michael is a huge Steelers and Penguins fan and hopes to live or retire in Pittsburgh someday.
