Bertram was in the hospital to have a percutaneous coronary intervention to open up blockages in his heart. his procedure went well and afterward, he was eager to get back on his feet. While he was out walking, he passed by the room of Soyoung Oh. She called out to him. They realized they knew each other. They'd met in Korea when he was stationed there during the war and fallen in love. However, they'd been separated when he went home.

With Nico's help translating, they started to catch up.
He was married to a woman named Lois.
When he was young, he was stationed in Korea during the war. While was there, he fell in love with a young Korean woman, Soyoung Oh. They communicated using a dictionary.
