“I Killed” raffle book winners: Scott Reeder and Christina Griffin.  CONGRATS!!

Week two of my SoCal journey takes me to America’s Finest City… San Diego!  1st stop: Naval Base San Diego.   You guys were great today!  Thank you to the hundreds of you for coming out to the base theater and spending part of your day with me.  I hope I made you laugh and think all at the same time 😉   See pics from today below!  Thank you for all the love!!  Chief Miller…thank you for everything!  NBSD is the principal home port of the Pacific Fleet, consisting of 46 Navy ships, one Coast Guard cutters, seven Military Sealift Command logistical support platforms, several research and auxiliary vessels. NBSD is also home to 213 individual commands, each having specific and specialized fleet support purposes.

    Thank you, Bernie, for sharing your story, the message is very powerful that it gave us more awareness on what we see like these common life events might turn your fate downhill that affects not only yourself but the people around you. The way or style of how you tell the story is very unique and effective way that I was expecting to pass-out because I just got off from mid to morning duty watch without any sleep but I took everything smoothly and clearly.., Again thank you for that, more power on your career and God Bless you and your beautiful family.

    It was a pleasure to have you at NBSD. We really enjoyed our time with you, it was a great story that you shared. We have to go out for tacos, next time you are in town.

    Today I did something I rarely do and that is Party. I partied and the people that came over I made sure they had a plan and that their friends stuck with the plan of the DD. I kept bringing you up throughout the night . I would have done that even not listening to you today but I’m happy I did. Thank you very much. You made me cry my contacts out. If I didn’t have more in the car I would have driven home not able to see which I think is equally as bad as driving drunk.
