Dear Mr. McGrenahan,

Welcome back to the U.S. Army Garrison Schweinfurt you are truly a friend of our Garrison. Thank you on behalf of our community for supporting our Soldiers, Civilians and Families. Once again your event has not only entertained our community but has brought us your important message of alcohol and substance abuse. By combining humor with a more serious message about the potential hazards associated with over-consumption of alcohol and misuse of drugs. You have made a difference through your sincerity and inspirational delivery to our young men and women who are answering their nations call.

Again, welcome back and thank you for your service, mission accomplished.

“Every Day… Better”

 

Sincerely,

Anthony E. Haager

P.S. Thanks for being here. Your message and method is one of the best I have seen. You coming to Schweinfurt is one the best things that have happened to this Community!

Dear Bernie:

I’m writing this letter to thank you for bringing your Happy Hour Comedy Show to the Caserma Ederle in Vicenza, Italy. I appreciate your powerful message regarding the dangers of high risk drinking and substance abuse and I am sure you had a positive effect on the fortunate individuals that were able to see your show. I have been a Prevention Coordinator and have given presentations and seen outside guests present alcohol and drug prevention trainings, but I have never had the tremendous amount of positive feedback and asking when are you going to come back, from Soldiers and civilians alike, as was associated with your show. I certainly hope we have the good fortune to get you back to Vicwenza Soon. You have been a great aid to help me reach more troops and inspire them to be responsible and achieve mission success. I wish you much continued success in bringing your much needed message to our Service Members and civilians alike.

Sincerely,

Charles R. Fields, ADCO

Dear Mr McGrenahan,

Thank you for taking time to speak at the 2010 Army Senior Safety Tactical Symposium. I have no doubt your unique perspective will have a poitive impact on our Army in the critical days ahead.

General George S. Patton, one of the most revered officers our military has ever known, once said, “The Soldier is the Army.” After nearly a decade of continuous conflict, we now know our Army cannot stand on Soldiers alone. Your involvement in this symposium has contributed immeasurably to the noble goal of keeping our total force- Soldiers, Families and Civilians- safe, ready and strong. Thank you again for supporting our Army and our Nation

Dear Mr. McGrenahan:

You brought the Happy Hour Comedy Show, “Comedy is the Cure” to Fort Huachuca on April 18-19, 20 11. Your presentation on alcohol, high risk behaviors, sexual assault, suicide, and domestic violence was a hit on the Fort Huachuca Installation. Your personal testimony was a powerful and inspirational message about the consequences of irresponsible drinking and drug use; and how it affected not only yourself, but your family as well. The soldiers and civilians laughed from their hearts and guts. Through humor and wit, your message about becoming personally responsible for yourself and your Battle Buddy reached a lot of the soldiers and civilians. After the performances, many soldiers said they were able to relate to your testimony and were encouraged to utilize some of the resources that were mentioned during the performances. This was the second year that you have supported the Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Month through the Happy Hour Comedy Show. Fort Huachuca is looking forward to having you back.

Sincerely,

Stacy Jones

Bernie McGrenahan brought his Comedy With A Twist to Ft Wainwright, Alaska 24 and 25 January 2011.  Bernie was scheduled for two shows on the 24th and one on the 25th.  While here he also agreed to pay a visit to the Warrior Transition Unit (aka Wounded Warrior Unit).  The Soldiers at the WTU were so excited about Bernie coming to see them personally that Bernie gave them their own private Comedy Hour.  They were ecstatic over him.

Bernie‘s show brings humor.  But he also brings a heartfelt personal message about irresponsible drinking and the devastating consequences of using drugs.

The Soldiers laughed from their hearts and guts, and they also felt Bernie’s sincere love for them.  I think Bernie clearly gives a message that alcohol and drugs are destructive and that Soldiers can and do have fun and laughter without them.

We have an average of 6-8 groups and individuals visit us each year to give messages about mental health, suicide, alcohol and drugs.  Without reservation and with all sincerity, Bernie McGrenahan’s Comedy With A Twist was one of the BEST we’ve had at Ft. Wainwright.
