Bernie is in Ramstein AFB Germany!

What a wonderful week it’s been! I’ve enjoyed being in the UK and I am thrilled to be here at Ramstein AFB for  the ‘Happy Hour’ comedy ‘with a message’ tour. You Airmen packed the HERCULES Theater today, and I cannot thank you enough for coming down.  Even if it was MANDATORY!  Colonel Bibb, Thank you for attending and introducing me.  Dr. Tom and the entire SAPR staff, one of the best in the Armed Forces- you serve our Airmen well.  I hope you had some laughs today and take my experiences with you in life.  Be the ‘sensor’.  Stay focused and Warrior strong! PS…If anyone knows the PR Airman who took photos, please send me their information so I can post shots of the audience today!  The one below in the middle is after the first training.  Thank you Capt Simoneaux, Capt Padgett, Airman Lewis, TSgt Schatt and all VA’s for your service

    Thank u very much for the story and the very cool briefing when u talked about your brother it reminded me of my cousin who nearly did the same thing and your brother is a beautiful person. My daughter is lacking in the speech department as well. Thank you for bringing the message a little more to the heart

    Bernie thank you for taking the time to come out and share your story. By far the best comedy show I’ve ever been forced to go and watch. Good luck on your whirlwind European tour. Give Scott a hug for my wife, Emily, and myself.

  23. Matt Hutzenbiler

    Bernie thank you for the great show today. I was skeptical when I arrived but your stories blew me away. I too lost my oldest brother to suicide just over a year ago. You helped me by sharing your story. I was glad to have the laughs also. Made my day go better. Thank you!!

    Hey Bernie, the show was awesome! Thanks for the laughs, a thousand time better that a damn Power Point presentation. The message was delivered and I am sure your story touched everybody in audience. I’m sure we all can relate some events in our past life to your life story and your decisions as a young man. Thanks for the teachings and contiue to do what you do best.

    Hey Bernie! As a Security Forces member I can say that your message was heard and understood on many different parallels. The comedy was a very nice touch and made the training a heckuva lot more entertaining. Keeping doing great things and I look forward to hearing that you make it another 25 years sober!
