SHAPE- Alliance Theater- Congrats to Ray Petersen- “I Killed” raffle book winner!!

SHAPE 1I’m happy to be here at SHAPE! Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) is the central command of NATO Military  forces. Since 1967 it has been located at Casteau, north of the Belgian City of Mons, but it had previously been located, from 1953, at Fontainbleau, France. From 1951 to 2003, SHAPE was the headquarters of operational forces in the European theatre (Allied Command Europe, ACE), but since 2003 it has been the headquarters of Allied Command Operations (ACO), controlling all allied operations worldwide. It is an honor to have you host my “Happy Hour” program.  Please come by the Alliance Theater on Tuesday, April 22 at 0930 hrs.  See you there!

    A hilarious comedy show, followed by a very moving and poignant story about Bernie’s past experiences and family. Well done to the SHAPE powers that be to hire this wonderful comedian to entertain us and get across a very powerful message about drugs and alcohol at the same time. Thanks Bernie…you were fabulous!

    Bernie, it was a pleasure to meet you and the show was awesome. Now I’m being asked is there a “make up training” and my response is yes, meet me in the classroom, I have 60 PowerPoint slides to READ to you. Your message was funny and impactful. Keep doing what you do; lives are definitely being changed and hearts encouraged by your gift of laughter. Oh and one last thing “He really didn’t mind”.
