Mountain Home AFB, ID- Happy Hour has Rolled through…..

What an incredible day Friday JAn 6th, in the mountains of Idaho.   1400 Wingmen strong in the am show, another 700 strong in the afternoon.  Both crowds were rocking.  I cannot thank each of you enough for treating me the way you did in Hangar 1331.  Thank you to Lt Hyer for hosting my Happy Hour Tour. ADAPT Team and Commanders, thank you.  My freedom is only possible because of you amazing Airmen.

Me doing what I love- greeting troops, Live on Stage, My sister Debra and brother Sean!

My brother Sean and I! Me LIVE 🙂 My brother Scott.

    Awesome job, Bernie! Although we have some common experiences that are BAAAAAD, we share the strength to put self-defeating behaviors behind us and share our perspectives to help others avoid the risks that were once a normal part of life for us. Funny, inspiring, and hard-hitting. Thank you for knowing you audience so well and sending a passionate message!

  15. Wil Anderson

  16. SrA danette Thornley

    Thank you for comming to good old Mountain Home. Your show was a great break from the monotonous safety briefings that we usually receive.

  29. SSgt Dube'

    First of all thanks for walking your talk! I appreciate how you took traumatic events in your life and flipped them around to improve your life and send out a real and positive message. You killed it this morning. I gotta say that camo netting was a “stroke of genius” in the act!!! LOL….. Does it make me wrong to wish you would have fallen??? LOL…Not sure why that’s funny, but it was actually a natural illustration of how your comedy is the cure. A big thanks for turning a commanders call into something enjoyable (for once)!!!

  30. Michelle

    I’ll be honest….when most of us hear the words “Commanders Call”, we cringe slightly…you never know how it’s going to be. I’m so glad that this turned out to be the the most hilarious Commanders Call I’ve ever attended! I wish all “mandatory” formations were like this one…..thanks for taking the time to come speak with us and especially the laughs!! I know you touched some lives today. Thank you!

  31. SSgt Hamilton

    Thanks Bernie for coming here. You had a great message and am definatly gonna reccomend you to family and friends. You are damn funny!!! If you were gonna play Ball, what team would you want to play for. Nevermind its probably the Yankees…Anywho, take care.

  32. A1C Tybus

    Great show this morning! It was an excellent to start off my day. Best Commanders Call I have ever been to.

  33. Christy

    Great show!! Thank you so much for sharing your stories. You Killed!!

  51. MSgt(s) Treena and Lenni Merk

    Both my husband and I attended the morning CC Call and were inspired and touched by your message. You are truly a gifted comedian that killed the show. You’re ability to take some of life’s darkest moments and hard lessons learned and share them using humor and conviction was awesome. You definitely won the hearts and laughs of everyone in the audience. Thanks for what you do. Take care and all the best to you and your family and may this coming year bring you blessings of love and less camo netting stages. Have a safe trip back to LA.

  52. Dan Muffler

    One of the Best CC calls.

    You killed it!! I have been at Mountain Home AFB for 5 years now and out of all the commanders calls I’ve been dragged into – yours made it the most inspirational, hilarious and moving one I have ever attended. Thank you for making my day and a great ending to my first week back to work from my deployment in Iraq. I will be starting the book as soon as possible! You are a very special person to your family as well as this country, you have a heart of gold, keep up the good work and come back someday! – If you only knew how many lives you have saved –
