Congrats to “I Killed” raffle book winners:   Kevin Rivera / Austin Thompson / Mary Beth Saentz / David Miller and Angelica Ayala   (please email Cheri Weber at cheri.l.weber.civ@mail.mil to claim your book!)

I want to thank the 111, the Thunderbirds and the rest of the Garrison for showing up today with an open mind and a willing heart.  I had a great time at both presentations.  Everyone of you was a  great sport when I came down to the lower level and got to meet some of you up close during the show.  Thank you to Colonel Morelans, Sergeant Major Prasse, Cheri Weber and the entire Soldier & Family Readiness team for their combined efforts toward one cause.  Thank you to retired Sergeant Major Jack Rippel for packing up his vehicle in Las Vegas to accompany me 500 miles to the wonderful and historic Fort Huachuca.  Lana Stutzman, it was an added treat to see you and I appreciate the effort you made to attend the trainings.  An added mention of appreciation to David Miller and his comic on the corner work and souvenir he left with me.  Willie Owens, I appreciate the coin.  Stay resilient, stay focused and be great leaders soldiers!

Your friend,

Bernie McGrenahan.

FE Warren AFB 15 June 2021

CONGRATS TO “I KILLED” RAFFLE BOOK WINNERS: Maj Nicole Tait, Austin Brickey and Ryan Lloyd!!!

I had an amazing time today at FE Warren Air Force Base. I can’t thank the airmen and civilians enough who showed up today to support a live event for the first time in 18 months from our aspect.  This was very meaningful to me. To be able to get on stage and share some humor and hear the laughter in return was very fulfilling and healing.  I will forever be grateful to the men and women who wear the uniform day in and day out. I’ll never know the sacrifice and commitment you have dedicated yourselves to, however being in your presence is one of the greatest feelings I can ever hope to experience.  Stay strong Warriors. Support each other. Protect each other. And love wherever the opportunity avails.
Thank you to SMSgt Stollings, Rebecca Nordin and all the team members who worked hard to sponsor and host this special event.
