    Your comedy was awesome and you tied in the lesson very well. If all our briefings were done by comedians I’d be happy to sit through them all.

    Thanks for the laughs! I was there and this was by far the best “mandatory” briefing I have been to. Safe travels.

    Bro, thanks again for your courage to share your story with our community. I know your message got through, and that doesn’t always happen with these mandatory briefings. Your work affects the lives of the people it reaches. Keep up the good work, good luck and, safe travels. Congratulations on your 24 years of sobriety, that’s amazing! Take good care. Ciao & thanks again. Airmen could always use a little laughter.

    Hey thanks for the story man I really appreciated the quality of your show. I had a DUI before I came to the Air Force and was in jail for awhile as well. These days I rarely drink anymore because it has such a big effect on the following days to come. I can relate with some of your story so I am glad. Take care and thanks for what you’ve done it is making a difference so never doubt yourself.

    Mr. Bernie thanks for all you are doing for our service members across the world. Your comedy is hilarious…best briefing of my 8 year military career! Your story is inspirational and I know it is touching service member’s lives more then you will ever know. Keep doing what your doing!!! May God bless you and yours, Always ~Mandy~ (SSgt Arndt)

    I agree with Dorothy… if I’d know what exactly we’d be doing, there would have been no “mandatory” about it for me! Thank you again, I truly loved your materiel, and your message. It was great to see you be so real with up, and yet so light hearted…
