Bert Kortegaard, a not-untypical KW vintage sailor, earned this BSEE Diploma at MIT while on the GI Bill

Bert was a Veteran of Inchon, Wonsan, Commando Raids with 41RMC, Kimpo and other engagements

Kortegaard's subsequent technical contributions won two international awards. One example of his later work was recognized at the 1986 IR-100 AwardsPresentation in Chicago for his Precision Laser Alignment Control System, Pacman©

Kortegaard ended his career by creating an Applied Sciences Proficiency program, which provided week-long theoretical and design seminars on Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) engineering problems.

Distinguished Performance

The award I enjoy most is probably a sculpture "Mighty Mouse," 2012, from the kind White Rock Senior Center manager and artist Annie Bard.
