Richard Berrettini Honored In Afghanistan


Phoenix Honors Fallen Comrade

KABUL, Afghanistan— Fallen Warrior Lt. Col. Richard J. Berrettini was honored for his service and sacrifice in a memorial ceremony January 15 at Camp Phoenix, Kabul, Afghanistan. Lt. Col. Berrettini died Jan. 11 in San Antonio of wounds suffered on Jan. 2 in Khowst Province, Afghanistan, when his vehicle encountered an improvised explosive device.

“If I had one word to describe “Doc” Berrettini, the word would be ‘inspiring,’” said Chaplain (Capt.) Iris Dickerson. “He touched the lives of everyone he came in contact with.”

1st Lt. Nickolas Berger, preventive medicine officer at Camp Phoenix, remembered the day Lt. Col. Berrettini arrived at Camp Shelby (Miss., for mobilization training). “He was an instant hit with everyone,” said Berger. “His love for the soldiers and the passion he had for helping others was evident.”

Lt. Col. Berrettini was exceptionally dedicated to the mission.

“I watched him put his heart and soul into making the 1st Brigade, 203rd Afghan National Army Corps a better unit,” said Lt. Col. Michael Haerr, who worked alongside Lt. Col. Berrettini at Camp Clark. “He was proud to make Afghanistan a better place.”

“His memory will be in our hearts,” said Chaplain Dickerson, “his walk, his talk, his laughter, his presence….his inspiration.”
