Congrats to “I Killed” raffle book winners: Drew Carrigan and Tom Buist!
What a fantastic morning it was getting to perform at the historical launch site site Cape Canaveral. The Shark Tank venue provided an intimate space to share some enjoyable laughs with many of our finest Airmen and Civilians. Thank you not only to Command Chief King and Colonel Lang for your leadership and support but the many attendees who filled the room and my heart. Your service will forever be appreciated.
Some cool facts about CCAFS : A number of American space exploration pioneers were launched from CCAFS, including the first U.S. Earth satellite in 1958, first U.S. astronaut (1961), first U.S. astronaut in orbit (1962), first two-man U.S. spacecraft (1965), first U.S. unmanned lunar landing (1966), and first three-man U.S. spacecraft (1968). It was also the launch site for all of the first spacecraft to (separately) fly past each of the planets in the Solar System (1962–1977), the first spacecraft to orbit Mars (1971) and roam its surface (1996), the first American spacecraft to orbit and land on Venus (1978), the first spacecraft to orbit Saturn (2004), and to orbit Mercury (2011), and the first spacecraft to leave the Solar System (1977). Portions of the base have been designated a National Historic Landmark for their association with the early years of the American space program.
I really enjoyed your show

Hey Bernie, thanks again for coming down and sharing your story and humor with all of us. Like you said, it’s tough to make mandatory fun, but you did a great job! Congrats also on 30 years, that is such an awesome accomplishment!
A 98 civic may be a piece-o-crap car, but I love it anyway!
People like Bernie, whose gratitude and patriotism could stand toe to toe with any service member I know, make serving this country such an honor. His message was engaging, genuine, applicable to all and we are better for having the opportunity to hear it. Thanks Bernie. I’m inspired to be a better person. God bless you, your family and continued success changing the lives of America’s finest.
