    I had the privilege of working with Bernie at Offutt AFB, and am sad to hear of his passing. Odd to say, but I was just thinking of him the other day, and wondered what happened to him after he departed. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and his friends.

    I am deeply saddened by the loss of Bernie. I served with him at Offutt AFB and at Osan AB. My God be with the family in this difficult time. I pray that he is with God in Glory.

    Had a random thought about Bernie the other day and did a quick search to see if I might find him, and I came across this. Such sad news. My condolences to his family and friends. I served with Bernie in the carpentry shop at Sembach AFB in the late 70’s. We shared a love of music, photography, and Dr. pepper, and, of course, the ability to find humor in everything. RIP Bernie.
