    I have to admit, although the show was mandatory, I had a great time. Thank you for bringing your message to Keesler. You’re an inspiration to everyone here. God bless you.

    Bernie, your show was very funny and extremely inspiring. I too have been in a similar situation. Joining the military was the change I needed. As I was leaving the theater, I overheard airmen talking about giving up drinking. Kudos to your inspiration. Thank you for the show 🙂

    when informed about the mandatory show, everyone figured it was going to be some boring dry comedy routine about drug and alcohol abuse prevention along with Sexual assault. but your show was the exact opposite. after the show i asked all my friends and all of em enjoyed it. it beats getting a briefing from our superiors any day. your message was strong and clear and i hope some people really take it to heart.
    Thank You

    The show was great, keep up the good work. You look just like my step-dad though, so I was kind of freaked out at first.

    I have to say your show really grabs the attention of everyone. I had a sister lost to someone that was drunk. She was 15. So I’ve decided drinking just will never be a thing i enjoy. Thanks for coming, you’re hilarious. Also, congrats on turning your life around. Everyone deserves a second chance.

    Bernie, great show today. You really got the message across and we all appreciate you coming out to talk with us. Times can be hard and it’s good to have an occasional morale booster. I want to thank you for sharing your stories with us, they were very inspirational and I believe a lot of us now have a different mindset, whether it pertain to drinking or dealing with stess. Thanks again and God Bless.

    Thank you so much for coming to Keesler AFB and talking to us. The show was great. Very informative and inspirational. As many have said, even though it was mandatory I’m sure they were glad they attended and would have regretted not going. Thanks again!

  31. Charmaine Lowe

    Hey, Bernie, not only was your show funny, your story about your brothers was truly touching. My two sisters and I are split, all in 3 different parts of the world, and it’s hard to keep in daily contact. I immediately called them as soon as I got back to my hotel room. It’s amazing what you do for Sean, and I hope that my two sisters look up to me like that. I was one of the 30-ish Marines in the sea of Airmen. It’s good to see something other than a “death by power point presentation” used for our training purposes. You not only kept me awake for the one hour I was required to come in on my day off, but I truly enjoyed the show. Thank you, and I hope I get the opportunity to see you again.

  32. Samantha Z

    Loved the show! Thank you for coming out!

  33. Josh

    Awesome job! Just like the rest of the comments, really, you changed the minds of quite a few people yesterday. It really was a “mandatory” event that I would recommend going to any day. Kudos to whoever made the decision of inviting you to Keesler AFB, too!

  34. Rogest m. Smith

    Excellent show Bernie, I know your performance here at JBL-E will save numerous of our Soldiers lives as they stop and reflect on your story
