The rock band Kiss cannot be described by any other word than everywhere. I have never been a huge fan except for the occasional “Rock and Roll All Night” on my iPod, but my boyfriend’s father is obsessed so I hear a lot about them.
I’ve begun paying more attention to the makeup and leather covered rockers when I came across a post from the Augusta Chronicle about their visit to a V.A. medical center.
After their visit to the Augusta-area V.A. medical center, Kiss brought some of the wounded soldiers to the concert as special guests, and Kiss donated the proceeds from the sale of special edition t-shirt to Wounded Warrior Care Project.
There has been no news of planned future visits to other V.A. medical centers in other areas of the country, but I think this shirt should be available for purchase on their website so Kiss fans around the world can support their favorite band and wounded warriors.
A fan letter was posted on the Kiss website, and an excerpt touched my heart:
It was a great pleasure to get to meet members of my favorite band and chat with them for a few minutes. But, what was even more awesome was to see how they interacted with people who put their lives on the line for our freedom. You could tell, KISS were the ones who were honored to be there and spend time with those special veterans.
