    Bernie, I just got back from your show at the MCAS Beaufort and I have to say it was the best mandatory brief I’ve ever had to go to, but also the most touching. I’m glad there are people like you out there who can share thier life experiences and not make it sound like some text book dribble. God bless you for all your hard work and effort, cause I know it ain’t easy to talk to a bunch of jarheads.

    That was an awesome show! You certainly have a gift for sending an INSPIRING and POWERFUL message, through your humor, without dilluting the message, or putting everyone to sleep. Such a welcomed change from the DEATH BY POWERPOINT we sometimes encounter. Thank you for YOUR service to us…

    Thank you for sharing your story with us today at Parris Island. Your presentation has a great mix of comedy and story telling to get your information across. It was very funny and touching, I’m sure your message got across to some Marines which is the whole purpose for the program.

  12. Daron King

    Good show overall. I’ve never heard of you before but, you gave us some good laughs. I can’t think of to many mandetory functions that actally made you laugh. The way you incorporated your life experiences into your show was a good way to get your overall point across to all who attended. Again thanks for the laughs.

    Great show and message today at PI. Im glad you can share you life stories with everyone. Hope your little brother packs more than an X Box next time he comes over.

    Just checked out the show and really enjoyed it (almost busted a gut). Best mandatory fun i had in 9 years. Not too many comics can combine serious and funny successfully.

  15. Rafael Jimenez


    Awesome show and great laughs. What an awesome way to tie in comedy with mandatory training! I’ll be sure to stop picking out the last little bits of my deoderant..haha

    Thank you for an amazing show. Way better then I expected the Marine Corps to provide us with. I really liked the way you combined your real life expierences with the comedy it really helped get you message out to everyone. I too have lost a younger brother, and struggled with alcohol a little bit right after that happend, so your message really hit home for me, thanks again

    Great show today thanks!!!

    Great show! Not your regular sit down and listen to someone talk. Had me laughing pretty hard at the toilet jokes. By the way I work at the pool and unfortunately I do wear a speedo.

  22. Chris Bullington

    Great show! Thanks for coming out. I really did need a laugh. I haven’t laughed that hard in awhile. I had my struggles we alcohol but I was a man and got help. You put out a good message keep it up.

    Sexual Assault with mandatory comedy was the best PME I have ever attended.

  24. Sergeant Dwight Whitaker

    The show was awsome. I liked how you were able to relate your personal stories to real-life stories. I thought that your show was funny and most important the message that you had to share with us and the world. I appericate your time and thanks for coming by the island. God Bless and Semper Fi.

    Hey Bernie! Great show at the Depot. Best mandatory brief I have ever been to. Thanks for signing my poster!

  26. SSgt Booker, Robert

    I loved the show Bernie. I do wish all PME’s were as interesting. I talked to to you after the show. I wish you had time to hit more bases on the Marine side. I had to watch two families be destroyed over alcohol. One of my LCpl’s was sentenced to 15 yrs to life for a DUI accident that killed a prominent doctor in Santa Anna, CA. That family was destroyed due to the accident and the Marines family as well. That Marine had baby that will now be able to get a license before he gets out of prison. I think testimonies of your personal life may have helped hit home on some of the Marines that just take the usual Friday safety briefs lightly. I am goign to pass the information that you gave me to my old BN. They are deployed currently and I believe a post deployment show would benefit them. Even if only one thinks about it before going out that is one more Marine that will make a wise decision and plan properly to help save his fellow Marines from the same tragedy I have seen so many others endure due to alcohol.

    Bernie, awesome show. The comedy was great. One the best alcohol/sexual assault classes I’ve been to. Very effective. You saved many Marine lives today. Semper Fi.

  29. Sgt Woods

    Thanks for the good time. It was nice to break the routine sexual harrassment brief. I hope that I can attend another brief in the future. Hopefully you can visit more Marine Corps bases.

    preciate you sharing your experiences Bernie. Your approach of getting your point across was great. Funny, yet i think we all took something besides some great laughs thanks to you. Hope to catch you here next year. God Bless

  31. SSgt Webb

    Great show today man. I appreciated the laughs even if it was at a mandatory event. I’m glad that I attended and was able to shake your hand.

  32. Maggie

    I saw your show yesterday at MCAS Beaufort and wanted to say thanks for the great laughs… its always refreshing to see someone who had issues in their past and have completely changed their life due to events that have happened and then be able to share them without making it sound like their looking for sympathy. you had a great message and you’re doing great things. Especially with your brother Sean. I have a cousin just like him. God Bless. Semper Fi

    Awesome show!!!!! Thank you for coming out and doing that amazing show for us. We really appreciate the laughs and your incredible story.

    My hero is my mother. I’ve seen alcoholism take over my whole entire family. It ripped us apart. After a long battle, my mother found the courage to do what was right and to get sober. She has now been sober for over 7 years and is doing great. Everytime I get i chance to go home, I always go with her to her meetings. Thats my way of showing my support and encouring her to stay on track because I’m sure you know, everyday is a struggle!!

    Thank you again for coming out and making us laugh and sharing your story with us. It was truly amazing and greatly appreciated. Come again soon!!

    Bernie I enjoyed the show, I was touched and inspired. Just your words made me re-evaluate my life and think about my purpose. Keep doing what you are doing it makes a difference. I am proud to say I was at your show.
