    I was at your “Comedy with a Message” show at the Naval Station Rota Theatre. I really enjoyed it, I respect your testimony and the courage you have to share it with us. I look forward to reading the comedy book. I plan on purchasing one even if I do not win the raffle. Thanks

    I appreciate what you do for us in uniform, and the training you gave us today (03APR) was amazing. Some of us have lost friends along the way, and many don’t talk about how they feel. But seeing you talk about your life, your Brothers. . . I hope that others take your example and are inspired by it to get the help they need, and stop searching for solace in the bottom of a bottle.

    I talk about my story when I feel the desire to, but you talking about the pain you’ve been through every time you get on stage to train us is a special courage that many, many of us don’t have. Hat’s off to you, and thank you for the lessons. God Bless.

    I have seen you 6 times and i laugh harder every time. Every time i see you do your stand-up it gets more and more deep and emotional for the crowd and for your self.

    Some one can tell just how strong and deep there message is when the teller is trying not to get emotional and that is what is so awesome about your story and stand up, its from the heart. Thank you.
