Last Known Activity

Gunshot on Combat Operation. Carl and I were in the 173rd MP Co, but we volunteered to serve with a line unit after Dak To, November '67. He was carrying the M-60 on Hill 1000 when he was hit, near Plei Mrang, Kontum. My squad leader, Sgt Merrill was also killed. Posted by: Emmett Lauer.

Highway ceremony was touching: To the editor: This is one huge thank you to the following groups and individuals that took part in my brothers dedication ceremony on July 29 at the Lighthouse Church in Richmond. This was a great day for our little town with many dignitaries and testimonials. I feel that it was well done and quite successful thanks to the efforts of many people. It sure made people feel patriotic and have great respect for our military. We were very honored to have those who attended showing respect for a true fallen hero. The road is now named Corporal Carl H. Bernhart Memorial Highway.

This thank you list is in no particular order: the Rev. Anthony Bianchini and church councilman Bobby Eroshevich; Richmond Fire Department; Richmond American Legion Post 740  J.O. Henry and members, the color guard and the 21-gun salute; Jefferson County Veterans Services  Shelly Brooks and Annabel Clutter; Lions Club; singer Frankie Russell; state Rep. Jack Cera, D-Bellaire  primary sponsor, plaques and awards, and his secretary, Pam Wilson; U.S. Rep. Bill Johnson, R-Marietta, for his proclamation and super speech, and his helper, Mike Peppel; Wendell Keyser, Patriot Guards for veterans pins and folder; Emmett Lauer, a battlefield soldier who served with Carl and a true hero; Dave DiCicco, modern 173rd Airborne; Chaplain Joe Marquez, head of all U.S. airborne; the Ohio Department of Transportation for signs and plaques, including Ty Justice; the Rev. Gary Halberg, taps; Jefferson County Cable, advertising; Janice Kiaski of the Herald-Star, super reporting; Mayor Harry Thomas, town preparation and street flags; Ellen Swickard and Lucy Muchmore, 1,000 homemade cookies; a friend, Bill Baker, for months of prep work; Bruce Thomas and Lisa Street Smith, donations; Charlotte Sampson and Priscilla Braun, tons of help, including the PowerPoint presentation; John Barnhart, initiating and organizing; Barry Bardone, information; several veterans groups from the area; and others. Additional speakers included Carls daughter, Stephanie Ivany; and his brothers and sisters, Bill Baker, Bob Bodo, Bill Dryer, Tony Kovalesky, Sally Wihera and John Barnhart.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to join us. Your presence shows that you truly care and the Bernhart family greatly appreciates you. Finally, every time I pass those signs I shed a tear that warms my heart. Thanks. Michael L. Bernhart, Toronto.
