Ft Eustis!

Ft Eustis is a place with some of the most amazing soldiers in our country.  To meet the 11th, 24th, and 53rd Brigades as well as 7th Sustainment was a true honor. Most of us do not know what you do on a daily basis, what you sacrifice, but my appreciation and the gratitude of millions are thankful.  . Thank you for my freedom. Thank you to Col Cherry for caring so much for your troops. We appreciate all that you do. Raffle winners from show are Sgt Chavez and Sgt Victoria Lampton.  Contact Jamie@ComedyistheCure.com to claim your book prize. Thank you soldiers, for being so amazing last friday. Hoorah!!!

    Thanks for coming and doing your show here sir, that was the best required training that I have done in the army.
    The army says Hooah, the Marines say Hoorah, and the navy says Haaeeeyy(with a lisp).

    I just left Fort Eustis theatre and your comedy is amazing. Your life story was very interesting about what made you quit doing drugs, especially alcohol. And congrates on your 24th year of drug free; it really motivated me to keep up what im doin. By the way I am 1 month free of Alcohol.

    I have to say that it was an amazing show today on 20 January 2012 at Ft. Eustis, VA. It touched everyone in the room in some sort of way. Hopefully people take it into consideration and not let things that are harmful affect their lives. Help is around, but people have to swallow their pride and get the help needed. You were amazing. God bless.
