    Great show today. Definitely made me think about the decisions I make in life.

  6. PFC Santana, Lisa

    I didn’t know what we were getting ourselves into this morning, but I’m greatful it was getting to hear your in powering life story. My views on alcohol have been drastically shifted, not that I didn’t know that drinking excessively wasn’t a good thing but your story has opened my eyes to situations in my life that could’ve potentially put me in situations such as yours. So I thank you! You, your family, and your story are truly amazing and I’m glad you’re able to share it!

    Very very good show. I appreciate you coming out and speaking to the troops. 10 years speaking to the troops is pretty amazing. Thank you for all you do.

  8. Michael Snyder

    Thanks for coming and talking to all of us. By far the best training I have had in the army!

  9. Maj Kiser (Retired)

    Thank you for sharing your life experiences and lessons learned on not only the impact of alcohol but also suicide.

    Many thank those in the military for their service. I would like to thank you for your service in sharing your message to those in the military.

    Thanks for an entertaining and engaging hour! Early morning soldiers are a tough crowd, and you definitely got us going. Thanks for sharing your story and for dedicating so much to the military. I’m sure your brother is proud of how he is able to change lives so many years after his loss. BERNIE!….. bernie…..

    You have a natural gift of combining comedy with a difficult set of struggles that impact a number of personnel and people. It was nice to have a PowerPoint free and unique presentation that really serves beyond its military audience.
