I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to be here at Ft Polk!  It’s been several years since I have visited this installation and I am excited to be back!   In addition to training soldiers and growing leaders to deploy, fight, and win, Ft Polk provides a secure, thriving community for Soldiers, Army Civilians, Retirees, and their Families.  Thank you to SFC Cortes and Major Camphouse for working so HARD to bring my Comedy With A Four Star Message to the soldiers and civilians.  I know it took a lot of determination and effort but you did it and I am grateful!   I will be at the Bayou Theater on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (24, 25, 26 and 31 August and 6 September) at 0900 and 1100 and the Base Chapel on 7 Sept at 0900 and 1100 .  Come by and say hey…have some laughs…and enjoy a different approach to ‘training’.

  3. Stephen

    Bernie continues to kill at Fort Polk! But in all seriousness, thank you for bringing your story to our Soldiers and fellow service members all over the world.

  4. Walter Martin

    Great show with a great sense of humor, awesome life story and example that overcoming obstacles is not impossible. Thanks a lot Bernie, the audience can tell you enjoy what you do.

  5. Araceli

    Hopefully we get to see you soon at Fort Polk again. Personally this show reached out to me in a tremendous way and I do hope you are given the opportunity to speak to more and more soldiers continuously.
    Bernie you have a wonderful gift, and a story that you could have chosen not to share with the world. But I want to genuinely thank you for using both to reach others. Again thank you, thank you for making a difference and for inspiring. Blessings.

    great show!

  7. Maria

    I loved the show. It was a different approach to a subject that may be very familiar to us because of power point. I felt like it was more interactive with a powerful message.

  8. Alan Simpson

    I enjoyed your show. Thank you for the laughter.

  9. Quentin Washington

    Such a great show. If I had to pick, my favorite part in reference to Shawn.That was very touching. What an overall and incredible message. Made me evaluate my lack of reaching out to my siblings. Best of luck to you Bernie.

    Amazing show!

    BY FAR the most effective Mental Resiliency Training ever!!! Bernie’s story adds a very deep and personal perspective on the many struggles that plague the men and women of the Army. Once again his story has truly impacted and resonated with me, so much more than any MRT briefing ever has. The Army should not only continue to sustain this program, but expand it. Thanks Bernie 🙂
