Sembach Kaserne- Congrats to “I Killed” raffle book winner: Steve Alombro!!

It is an honor to be here at Sembach Kaserne, my fourth stop on my Germany tour.  Sembach Kaserne (formerly Sembach Air Base) is a United States Army  installation in Semabach, Germany near Kaiserslautern, and is about 19 miles (30 km) east of Ramstein Air Base.  Prior to October 2010, it was a United States Air Force  installation, and prior to 1995, it was an active military airfield known as Sembach Air Base (former ICAO ETAS, IATA SEX). During the  Cold War (1950–1993), Sembach Air Base housed a variety of USAF Tactical Reconnaissance, Close Air Support and Tactical Air Control units as a front line NATO air base.  Thank you for hosting my Happy Hour program.  It is a pleasure to serve those who serve.  Please come to the Tiger Theater at 1400 on Tuesday April 15.  Can’t wait!!

  21. Mike Mosley

    I had a good time at your show. I know quite a few others that enjoyed it as well. Thanks for sharing your experiences with us.

  22. MSG Coughlin

    Great show and presentation, made drug and alcohol training fun. I can honestly say, that was the best mandatory training that I have been required to attend. I would recommend Bernie to any military community.

  23. Dan Madsen

    I tell you what, I was one of those people that was pissed off before the show started. But, I didn’t expect what happened, I was laughing my ass off 2 minutes in. Not to mention your emotional story and great message. Thanks man.

  24. SSG Kramer (no relation!)

    Thank you for sharing your story. Best ASAP training in 12 years of service. Thanks for serving those who serve.

    • 1SG Kramer

      Don’t to be associated huh…. I see how it is.

  25. Brian Martin

    Thank you very much for taking a lot of your time to go around to different military installations and giving the substance abuse of training a more human touch military members and civilians that support the forces. A lot of individuals do not take training seriously when it is all power point and briefings, you unfortunately shared a tragic event that happened in your life and people seem to take that more seriously. It also gave a sobering effect that hopefully will assist those that need to reach out for the help that they required to beat substance abuse. The show/ training hit the mark and please keep up the
    exceptionally great work! Best wishes to you and your family and yes you “Killed it”.

  26. andre corbin


    Your passion was obvious and your support for the military laudable.

    Check out for other tales highlighting great service members.

    Thanks for your great show.

  27. Aaron Cox

    The show was very moving and tells a story of great triumph. Bernie YOU NAILED IT! You have an amazing talent and you really moved the crowd. Very impressed with your attitude about the military and the way you support us. You are doing us a great service and saving a lot of lives indirectly. Best of luck to you and your new bride……now at least you will have more material to add to the funny events in life.

  28. Tony

    Thanks for the show. Last night’s fight with the wife was a doozy. Your show was the inspiration I needed at the right time. Thanks for lifting me up.

  29. SSG Peppard

    You killed it today! Thank you for sharing your story and making the mandatory comedy show entertaining. I havn’t laughed that hard in a long time.

  30. Kathy Burrell

    You sucked me in…the beginning was so funny and then your story pulled at my heart strings. Thanks and God Bless YOU ♥

  31. Carlos Salinas
