    I wanted to start by thanking you for your dedication to the military. Even though you may not wear the uniform you are doing something that is just as important. I have a twin brother myself and couldn’t even fatham losing him. I found your show hilarious and your story touching. Please keep your show alive and going. There is always someone out there that may be going through something in there life and I think that you can reach them and give them some light in a time of darkness. Once, again thank you and GOD Bless!

    Bernie,

    Thank you very much for coming to Charleston AFB. Your stand-up was amazing!! I appreciate your charisma and message you bring to our Armed Forces. The message resonates throughout our military. Please keep doing what you do. I know you expressed your sincere gratitude towards our Air Force, but the truth is; its people like yourself, and your message, is what makes us the strongest military in the world. You will not find this in any other country in the world. You are truly making a difference in our military, and we thank you.

    Bernie, you were great this morning! We appreciate your message and your method of delivery. Thank You, sir! I would choose comedy over Power Point anyday. You killed!

  33. Mary Poirier

    Bernie, You are wonderful and I know your mom is extremely proud. As a mother who lost my son to suicide, I have to thank you for the hug after the 0800 show. There is a connection that our pain and grief brings to the survivors of suicide. My heart goes out to your mom, I know the hurt all too well, and to you, your sister and brother. Survivors of suicide have a long road to go, but you are an inspiration of survival. I miss my son terribly, but I truly believe it made me a better mother for my daughter. You touched my heart and my soul. My love to all, Mary

  34. Robert Carman

    Great show!!! To tell the truth I was not looking forward to the Mandatory appointment. But I really did like the information that was presented.

  37. Jerry Marinucci

    This show was awesome, not only was it funny as hell, when it came down to the serious stuff, the meaning got through. Berine’s experience not only was a good example to us all, he put a twist to it to allow it to get to our newer generation. THanks for all your doing to get the message to all the men and women in the military!!!!

  38. Kira Hillyard

    Thanks Bernie for an amazing show! I went in expecting to be passing out in my chair after only a few minutes but your comedy kept me wide awake and laughing the whole time! Thank you again for a show that really spoke the truth!

  39. Bryan

    and it’s great to see how you are turning the negative experiences in your life into a
    positive teaching tool.

  43. John Hullinger

    Bernie, Great show Sir, Loved it. I Love Mandatory Comedy!! Great Message,

  44. Justin

    Your show was awesome! Just saw it at Charleston AFB by far the best mando commanders call ever. I never drink and drive due to the fact I have lost many close friends and family and the risk I put on myself and everyone around me. I hope that you touched someone and changed a few peoples mind set on the actions they take. I hope you come back again thank you!

  45. Walt Bonner

    First off, your brother Shane…my step-son (has DownS) and does the exact same thing with the games, packing, hugs and everything…I really felt you were describing my kid. I appreciate your respect for us but I want to personally thank you for your service to us…your message was heard loud and clear and really hit the mark. Thanks again.

    The best ever mandatory briefing I’ve had to go to in my 11 years in the AF. Awesome message and awesome presentation. Thank you so much. Best wishes to you and your family as you continue to spread such a powerful message to our military members.

  48. Chris Richey

    Bernie,
    Great Show. I hope all those who came took to heart your sincere message. Thank you for sharing your painful lessons learned. I hope you were able to reach some folks before they harm themselves or someone else. Thank you for the comic relief. It was a little raw for us Church folks, but you had a good underlying message. Keep up the good work. I hope you continue to do great things. We all could do better at reaching out and lifting others up. Thank you!

  49. Marc Disbrow

    Bernie,

    Well I guess I am too late for the Raffle but I will definitely share my diatribe with you (and all of your readers) nonetheless.

    I had the honor, privilege, & blessing of witnessing your show yesterday morning (20100430) at the Charleston AFB, SC movie theater. I must say that I was amazed and literally blown away not just by your charisma and show-stopping messages but by the sheer similarities that your life has had with my own.

    I am shocked and awed by the fact that not only have you lost a very near and dear family member but that it was “by way of the gun.” The parallels that were drawn in my mind as you told some of the details of your life-changing event(s) and their impacts were too many for me not to point out. First of all your height difference with each of your younger brothers is the exact same as mine with my “lil” bro. (He’s 6’4″ and I’m 5’8″, on a good day after bending over pulling weeds for hours that is…;o}~~~).

    My personal tragedy occurred 5 weeks after I PCS’d from England (care for a snog) to Iceland (Land of Fire & Ice). I was watching the Daytona 500 on February 18th/19th, 2001 and witnessed the tragic death of Dale Earndhart Sr. on the last lap of the race as he tried to help his son win his first Daytona. About the time that they were showing Sr. being transported to the hospital my father was laying in the snow and ice on the driveway of his Maine home with his neo-natal nurse fiancee’ resuscitating my brain-dead father’s body, the apparent victim of a pearl-handled WWII issued Colt 45 to the head.

    The details surrounding the case were almost as gruesome as the death itself and it was over two years later that the determination of death went from “Pending Investigation” to “Suicide”. Suffice it to say that I had a difficult time in dealing with it. I did everything that he said I could not do unless “it was over his dead body!” So on the first anniversary I got pierced, and not my ears either. Now granted I was not doing this to spite him but to “commemorate” his passing at such a young age (5 weeks shy of his 54th b’day) with an act of remembrance.

    I had never been pierced or inked before, (I’m still planning the ink) in my 29yrs of life at that time as it was forbidden by him. The momentary sensation of pain that I felt didn’t make it easier to deal with the loss. Neither did the drinking that ensued. After neglecting some important aspects of my life and career, I finally started to realize that I had to put the pieces back together and cope with this if I was to survive. It wasn’t easy, especially the realization of all of the signs that led up to his death.

    The worst the knowledge that he had been trying to reach out to me. I blamed myself. Leading up to and on the day of his demise he had been e-mailing me and attempting to communicate his distresses through “Yahoo” and my acct was too “Full”. I blamed myself for not keeping it clear and being able to correspond with him more regularly. It took a long time for me to let go of the blame that I felt, as I had just less than a year earlier flown home from England on emergency leave to deal with apparent suicide threats from both of my parents. Divorce of course, after just shy of 30yrs of marriage. I should have been more diligently aware and open to both of my parents.

    Suffice it to say that your words of inspiration resonated a chord within me. I have never had any difficulty opening up about anything really, (stating the obvious, I know) but in a round about manner I have learned to not just open up about the tragedy but to see it for what it truly was, God’s Wake-up call for me.

    I may not have the amazing sense of humor (or maybe it’s just the delivery…lol) that you have been gifted with but I have definitely used humor as a coping mechanism for this tragic turn of events.

    In closing, (finally, I know!) I would like to express my sincerest and humblest gratitude for all that you do. It truly impacts each and everyone of your audience members even if they do not realize it right there and then. You words of humor and wisdom stay with each of us for a long time afterward.

    I truly look forward to catching your show(s) again, hopefully whilst deployed and I will definitely procure your book prior to doing so.

    Be well and Blessings to you and yours, especially on your travels,

    Sincerely, Gratefully,

    Marc “D-BO” Disbrow

    P.S. IT’S A GURL!!! (My third…darned RADAR…lol)

    Mary Doar Isabella Disbrow is due 10/10/10! Awesome huh?!? Our “digital” baby!!! ;o}~~~

    P.P.S. Well she’s actually due 10/13/10, but I’m hoping! ;o}~~~

  50. Brittany Kelly

    Bernie,
    Your were awesome. The guy next to me laughed so hard I think he forgot to breathe. I have a lot of respect for you. It takes a strong man to overcome what you have. My mother teaches English to students with learning disabilities and it takes patience and a lot of love to do what you do for your brother. You are a hero eventhough you don’t wear a uniform. Thanks for coming out and sharing your message!!

  51. Jason Axberg

    Sir
    Just wanted you to know I really enjoyed your show. Its nice to watch a comedian, who is actually funny. You have a great way of mixing very important messages with humor. I think the Airmen really got the message. Thanks for doing this. Wish you all the best in your career.

  52. Wes Arguilla

    Bernie,

    This may have been my third time watching your show, it is alway great to watch.
