UNITED STATES NAVAL ACADEMY,MD! Honor,Courage, Commitment!

Hello Midshipmen! I had a blast tonight in the Bob Hope Theater/ Alumni Hall.   Thank you to the 4400 midshipmen who attended the show and filled the theater and to the incredible safety team how hosted me and brought me to the Academy.  I will never forget you, my trip to Bancroft Hall, the Chapel, and especially the performance in Alumni Hall.  I hope you had many  laughs and spread the message of choice and responsibility/accountability!  Take it with you into Spring Break and intervene, love, protect your brothers and sisters from harm. Hope to see all of you once again, hit me up if you have time.  Honor, Courage, Commitment.   Due to the incredibly kind and generous number of comments – come back tomorrow at 1500 hrs to see show attendance selectees from the ticket raffle!  Thank you for your service- to our nation.

  112. Phil Rouse

    Bernie, your presence here at the Naval Academy was an absolute God-sent. I don’t think I experienced such a wide range of emotions in such a short period of time. I went from laughing almost to the point of passing out to teary eyes within a couple of minutes. Keep doing what you’re doing. You are a true inspiration.

    Thanks for the laughs and the powerful message to reflect on. Life beats Cap’n Crunch any day of the week…

  122. Michael Hoefler

    The show tonight was amazing, your blend of comedy and a good message was a refreshing change from the usual “death by PowerPoint” and general amorality of most comedy. Keep doing what you are doing and I hope to see you again someday.

  202. Dave Nartker

    Thanks for the message tonight man. It really was powerful and you are the first speaker to tell us it was our choice and you weren’t telling us what to do. Thank you for sharing your story.

  203. Ben

    Great show man!! The first time I actually stayed awake in the Alumni Hall and the best spring break safety brief ever. I think I gotta change my spring break a bit since I was planing to get drunk down in Florida. Thanks for the inspiring and excellent message and saving my soul before I get another 45 days of restriction.

  204. A.J. Roman

    Good stuff.

  205. Ian

    Thank you Bernie for the laughs, the stories, and the wisdom! It’s training that sticks with us… Something powerpoints can’t do.

  277. JPR

    It’s hard to keep an audience’s attention longer than this year’s Best Picture! I have only seen Bill Clinton with as much command of an audience. Exquisite.

  278. Teronda Brown

  288. Chuck Newnam

    Thanks for stopping by, you’re awesome!

  289. Zach

    Thanks for the show Bernie! Great message! And by the way, the funniest part was when you asked if this beats the usual death-by-powerpoint. Usually each year they sit us down and show us a slide show of actual pictures of death (from drunk driving) before spring break to deter us from doing it.

  290. Travis Lippman

    Great Message…thank you very much!

  291. Rajiv

  301. Tina Estrem

    Bernie, outstanding performance. I think this one actually hit home for people…and got a few laughs in there too. Thanks man!

  302. Gary Koda

    Hey Bernie,.
    Thanks for the show. Awesome time and storys. Thank you for taking your time to come speak to us and help the Academy and service members.

    As far as captain crunch.
    Dane Cook once mentioned how koolaid breaks into a house. The thing about captain crunch is that Captain crunch not only crunches into your house, WITH A SHIP, he also turns you into a freakin bowl of cereal. And why does he always turn KIDS into cereal. I’m not saying he’s a pedophile but you know. If it quacks, moves, lives like a duck. (You can use this if you want.)

    In case I win the raffle.

    HEY LOOK!!! I WON.

    Midn 4/C Koda, Gary V.

  303. Christopher Dippel

    Thank you so much for speaking to us and being a break from the mundane and ordinary. After 3 and a half years of death-by-powerpoint, it was great to hear such a strong, personalized message; something that might actually stick with us for days, months, and years. Thanks for speaking to us and thanks for spreading this important message to people across the country. You are the MAN!

  304. Charlie Shepperd

    Bernie! Thanks for the great show and thank you for sharing your powerful message.

  305. Chris Stevens

    Thank you for the show. It was so much better than anything we had attended before, and your message was strong.

  306. Darren Settle

    Thanks for coming Bernie. Your message is great and thank you for taking the time to spread it…. And your jokes are hilarious! Take care!

  307. Angelique Sturdifen

    Bernie, thanks so much for coming to speak to us. You really delivered your message in a great way and I truly enjoyed it. Usually, my mind wanders during briefs, but your story and delivery was awesome and I paid attention. Thanks for visiting the Academy! 🙂

  308. Justin Bush

  321. Gavin K

    Great show

  322. Dave Schultz

    Thanks for coming out. Much better than the firefighters with the gruesome powerpoint.

  323. Chris Forero

    I have been in the Navy coming up on 8 years. Your show and message last night was by far the best safety brief I have ever been to! I am 25 years old and never had a drink because of stories like yours and my own experiences with friends and losing people close to me. I always get funny looks because I was in one of the rowdiest ratings in the Navy, I always told my guys that I would take care of them if they got stupid and I did, I still do and I always will. Thank you again Bernie for all that you do, the kids here appreciate it too, looking around the crowd you had everyone’s attention last night! Keep it up man you do great things!

    MIDN Forero, Chris

  324. Aaron Van Driessche

    Great Show. Thank you for coming.

  325. Nick Ernest

    Thanks for coming out, Bernie! Best alcohol/safety brief I have ever stayed awake for!
