Accompanying an early decision to follow the career of an engineer, his formal schooling included matriculation at the #UniversityofColorado and the #ColoradoSchoolofMines .

He was supervising the construction of Army airfields along the highway on the northern coast of the island of Mindanao when hostilities began. Caught between the Japanese landing on that coast and the enemy troops who fought their way up from the south, he made his way back into the mountainous country of Bukidnon near the Lanao region. The man who led the U. S. Engineers Corps under #MacArthur on #Bataan was still free when the island Hapitulated in late May of 1942. his American- #FilipinoGuerrilla Army of Mindanao. The #guerrillas used commando tactics. They fought the maddened and heavily-armed Japanese as craftily, bloodily and with amazing results, until a real question grew as to who controlled the island—the conquerors or the increasingly resisting conquered. The complete isolation of the guerrilla forces on Mindanao was cracked when radio contact was established with MacArthur's headquarters in Australia on the 1st of February, 1943. Soon they were receiving shipments of food, arms and medical supplies by American submarines. His family did not know he was alive until December of 1944. Colonel Fertig came home on 28 July 1945. After the war he was appointed Professor of Military Science and Tactics at the Colorado School of Mines.

Zona de capacitación y re incorporación agua bonita la Farc. Las balas calibre 30 mm eran lanzadas desde helicópteros con ametralladoras, un arma letal y sagas que ha estado por años en la guerra, asesinando a personas, dejando a otros heridos, lanzadas desde los aires colombianos. Pasa por un proceso el cual han desarrollado los guerrilleros de esta zona donde esta munición letal pasa de ser un arma de guerra hacer una ayuda para la construcción de un nuevo país desde la educación. Este armamento ya no son balas las cuales derramaban sangre ahora son lapiceros, si como lo dije lapiceros los cuales ellos mismos empuñaran para escribir sus ideas, argumentos, proyectos de vida, proyectos productivos con un único fin de cooperar en la edificación del país con el que tanto sueñan.
