    First I wanted to thank you for taking the time to perform for the Servicemembers and civilians that attend your shows. I think it is great reaching out to others with your Safety Training and sharing your personal, moving experiences with us. What better way to get the point across through laughter. Thanks again for coming to Cherry Point and keep on “Killin’ em”

    Good Evening Sir,

    I had a great time at your show. I found it very informative and fun and I think I’m going to bring my family tommorow. But one question, where is NAS Cherry Point?

  11. Ed Scott

    Thanks for what you do. I have seen a lot of safety talks, but this one was GREAT! Your message was from the heart and it was an outstanding show. Ed Scott MCAS Cherry Point Safety Manager.

    I really enjoyed the show. I jokes were clean and very funny. It was good to see a comedian present a class act with a message behind it. I can see the benefits of sharing your story with others around the world. With a message like yours, it could really save somebody’s life. Keep it going.

  15. Cpl Grieger

    What’s up bernie….I’v sat through a lot of briefs about the things you talked about and by far yours was the best. If there were more people like you giving advise to the Marine Corps would be better off. Thanks for what you do.


    Hey Bernie! You did an awesome job today at your show. I really enjoyed being there, especially being the morning person, I loved laughing at your jokes. Especially about girls on facebook. Did you see my page? hahah just kidding! Your story was touching. I cried. Inside. I will keep your message in mind, especially when it comes to family. I put my family first in everything. Especially losing my mom when she passed away 5 years ago. I took advantage of her being there. Now, I try to spend as much time with family, because they’re the only ones that truly loves you and care about you and will always be there for you. Thanks for your time coming out to Cherry Point. Have a good day!

    I enjoyed your routine, thank you. I needed a good laugh after a long week. I thought that you did a great job of transitioning from being funny to your serious talk. Once again thank.

    Thanks so much for coming to Cherry Point and doing your show. It was a lot of fun, I had a lot of laughs and also you sharing your story with us had a great impact on me, as well as other fellow Sailors. Keep doing what you do, it touches lives in a comedic way that we can all relate to and learn from as well. From all of us who place our lives on the line everyday, worldwide, you have earned great respect for appreciating what we do and giving back to us the way that you have.
    God Bless….

    I really enjoyed the show here at Cherry Point. Yes i was volnuTOLD to go and wasn’t looking forward to it. However, Bernie you made the message important enough to me. I have had 2 relitives get killed by Drunk Drivers and my oldest Brother, ironically named Sean, had attempted suicide 13 times. Thank God he didn’t succed. Unfortunately he has gone back to drugs and alcohol. I am a big time supporter of the DAPA program and I personally joke about drinking but don’t do it. Thank you again for coming. Would love to see the show again.

    Very Respectfully,

    HM2(SW)Thompson, Bethany
    Leading Petty Officer.

    Great Job Bernie, thank you for sharing your difficult experiences to help limit the possibility of similar experiences for others. Best of luck. You killed.

    i really appreciate you coming out to cherry point. the show was such a great and effective way to get through to us!! thank you!

    Hi Bernie,

    I think your show was great, you have a wonderful message and you were able to get it across by mixing it with comedy! This is definitely a good way to get the message across to young Sailors and Marines on Cherry Point without “boring” them to death, which is how they normally get training. Thanks for making all military members part of your tour! With everything that is going on in the world and with these military families, this type of training is right on target!!

  25. Janet Bohmuller

    I attended the “Happy Hour” program yesterday afternoon and I can honestly say, it was very entertaining! I not only enjoyed the message, I also enjoyed watching the Marines and Sailors respond to your message. It was prefect timing as the military has seen an increasing amount of suicides in the wake of OEF and OIF. I think the show would also be successful on college campuses too! My family is not military, but I do have two young boys and hope one day that someone will give them this message when the peer pressure starts! Thank you!!!

    Hey man Awesome show here at MCAS Cherry Point today. I am so glad that there are individuals like yourself out there, that want to provide some education/advice to our military personnel. You do this in such a way that the junior troops listen and respond much better then a “death by powerpoint” presentation, where they may wake up two hours later and have gained absolutely nothing. This is the type of educational tool needed for all our service men/women today. Thanks again for your support of our troops. Also, much thanks goes out to the Naval Health Staff. Job well done!

    Semper Fidelis,
