    Was one of the best shows for a safety stand down I have been to in 20 yrs of Navy service. Hope to see you in Point Loma again.

    I really enjoyed your show today in Point Loma. Your comedy routine had me in stitches and your life story is very touching and important to tell. Thanks for the lessons.

    I enjoyed your show today.

    Bernie!! Thank you for your time spent with us here on Navy Base Point Loma. I know you touched hearts and minds with your stories here today. I believe one of the strongest things you said is how we need to overcome the thought that admitting you have a problem makes a person look weak.
    …You kept asking every so often if our presence was mandatory. After you got into your story I thought you were about to say we had something in common! Glad that wasn’t the case. Enjoy your travels and continue to spread the word to make sure we handle stress the right way!

    Absolutely loved your show and appreciated you taking time to be with us! Many blessings to you and your family.

  7. Randall Behrendt

    Thank you for the show. It was comical, but also spread news about alcohol abuse as a serious problem. I hope you get the chance to come by Point Loma again.

    Thank you for making us laugh today.
    Your show was not only entertainment, it was very educational.

    Praise God for men like you!

    -What an enjoyable GMT-

    You’re a very influential person Bernie! Thank you so much for your comedy you gave us. You’re truly an inspiration to me, my father has been an alcoholic my whole life and has had 3 DUII’s himself and spent time in the slammer! Alcohol had a big negative impact on my life. That made me not want to be like he was, he’s now sober and a man of God. Thank you so much again for reassuring me to not let alcohol be the center of my life and liberty.

    Very good stuff and great change of pace from our normal training. Thank you for coming, and enjoy your holiday as well.

    Thanks a ton for the great safety stand down. Since I’ve been in, I haven’t been to a better one. Again thank you for the touching story and many laughs.

  14. David Warren

    Great show!

    I love that you started by asking how many people were there because it was mandatory…I would have gone voluntarily if I knew it was going to be that good.

  15. Phillip Tran

    Assumed that today was just going to be another boring safety brief. I’m glad that Bernie came in and shared his story about his life. Had a great day full of laughter and made my day better.
    Thank you very much!

    Just wanted to say it was an awesome show. In my eyes your family is Navy even if you never served. You served your country by doing what you do. God bless you and your family.

    Wow an amazing show. I thought that gmt was going to be a waste of time. After having a couple of good laughs with my fellow shipmates and a more than serious topic of alcohol an what it can cause. I really think twice before I pick a beer. Thanks Bernie for your time and performance OHH-YEA
