AIR EDUCATION AND TRAINING COMMAND 15 MAY 2009
Dear Mr. McGrenahan,
Thank you for coming to Sheppard AFB with the Happy Hour Comedy Tour May 6 – 7, 2009. Your message about alcohol awareness, drug abuse, sexual awareness and the troubles they bring was inspirational. You were able to effectively reach many airmen with a great message in a manner that makes the message real.
Feedback received at the ADAPT clinic has been overwhelmingly positive. The clients my ADAPT staff have worked with unanimously stated they felt you were telling their story or speaking right to them. For example, one airmen said he was struggling emotionally after his brother had committed suicide recently. He was grateful to hear that someone else understood what he was going through. Another said she was struggling with being an “alcoholic in recovery” and keeping it a secret. She was grateful for the timing of the show so she could get the support she needed.
Once again, thank you for your appearance and the encouragement you gave while at Sheppard. I highly recommend this program for other Air Force bases and look forward to working with you again in the future.
James A. Stryd, Major, USAF
Behavioral Health Flight Commander
