    Great Job! Very memorable training, a lot better than DEATH BY POWER POINT. You Killed it.

  6. Jessica Reece

    I attended the July 12th “mando” training at NAS JAX. Best training I’ve received in the Navy yet!!!. Great job Bernie! You had me crying from laughter and from your heartfelt stories. You touched a lot of people, including me. Definitely memorable. Best of luck to you!

    Josephine Sedillo :
    I enjoyed the show. First time I’ve enjoyed a comedy show. LOL

    Training like this would be so much more interesting to have. “Death by powerpoint” isn’t very interactive, so it’s hard to pay attention. Thank you very much for taking time to have a show at NAS JAX.

    Really enjoyed the show. Quite possibly the savior of manditory training. Thank you alot.

  12. Anthony Rivera

    Thank you for your effective program. It was by far the most entertaining mandatory training I’ve attended. You almost made me raise my hand and scream “Glory!”. Thanks, again. -Anthony

    Great training today, thank you for sharing your story!

  17. Corey Bernardi

    Great show. I can honestly say that this was the best military training that I have ever recieved. Kept the interest of everyone in the room. Your overall routine was a great way to get the points out there to everyone and I would tell anyone that has the opportunity to attend to definetely go. You kept everyone laughing. Thank you!

  18. Colin Oates

    Great show and message at NAS Jax today, please keep up the good work! Hope you make it to Naval Station Norfolk soon. Would love to have my guys there to see your show.

  19. Vincent M. Kubat

    it was a good sow Bernie i didnt think it was gonna be funny at first but it was pretty good thanks for coming out and telling your story that might just be what some people need to realize that they are abusing alocohol and or drugs or even be able to put it out to someone who they think might be and again good show thanks again for taking your time to put the message out there.

  20. Vincent M. Kubat

    I lost one of my closest friends to suicide back in 2008 and it definitely is not the answer just wanted to say thanks for taking time out of your day to give the awesome training.

  21. Samantha Turner

    The show today was AWESOME!!! I had a shipmate that was “a happy go guy” who took his life and it really shocked everyone that knew him. Thank you for sharing your experiences and humor with NAS Jacksonville.

  22. ET2 Nwosu

    OMG!!! Bernie, YOU KILLED ME!!! At first I didn’t think you were going to be that funny but you most definitely proved me wrong!!!
    Way to go “Sparky”!!! LMBO

    Thank you for the message in which u gave NAS JAX. It was recieved. Your time was appreciated.

  29. Bryan Simek

    I’ll be honest your opening bit was kinda lame but overall it was a good time, I’ll definitely check out more of your stuff

  30. Michelle Winkler

    I just want to say that the training today was amazing. I am going to be honest, at first I was not to thrilled about having to be there. After listening to what seemed like 10 miniutes, I think that I felt every emotion in an hour an a half that a person can feel. I hope that the Navy has more training like this I think that the younger sailors coming into the Navy would be more moved and it would stay with them just a little bit longer. I know for myself it was one of the best trainings that I have experienced in 12 years!!!!!! Thank you so much for your time Mr. Bernie I wish you and your family the best come back to NAS anytime. SH2 Michelle R Winkler.

    I attented Bernie’s show yesterday. The training was amazing. I have a great appreciation for anyone who can tel their story honestly and overcome their situation. I hope in the future more training can be provided like this for all. Keep doing what you are doing God Bless….

  32. Brittni Sims

    I attended Bernie’s show yesterday. I thought it was the most effective training I’ve received since being here at NAS Jax. I can appreciate anyone that can get up n front of a room full of people and tell their story and to have overcome such hardships my hats off to him. Everyone has their story and I’m sure there were plenty of us who could relate in one way or another. Great job Bernie keep doing what you’re doing I enjoyed your show it was truly inspiring….God Bless

  33. ELEONOR Arehart

    Went to the training yesterday and it was hilarious!! Definitely made our mandatory training a lot more fun.

  34. Jamison

    “You suck! If you ever come back, we’ll kill you!” You did tell us we could say that, right?? Hey, just kidding, the show was awesome! Come back again, you were truly inspirational! Thanks.
