ARMY VETERAN TOURED WITH KISS

I was a Soldier in the U.S. Army for 21 years. I have been in the KISS Army for 38 years. I served in both. I was an Infantryman, answering my country’s call on tours around the world. I was a roadie, helping to put on the greatest rock and roll show on earth on tour around North America. I dreamed about doing both ever since I was a kid. I have since fulfilled those dreams . A year later, I find myself pushing toward fulfilling other dreams and goals.

After I decided that it was time to hang up my boots and retire from the military, I had to figure out what path to take next. For the next year and a half, I struggled in the job market. I didn’t have a college education and, after spending all of my adult life in the military, I didn’t really know how to market myself to potential employers. Life had become very frustrating until one day I got a Facebook message from a friend in Virginia that would change my life.

Last year, KISS got together with Hiring Our Heroes, part of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, to hire a veteran as a roadie for the summer North American tour. After submitting my resume, I started to think about how I could get mine noticed over other applicants. So I started a Facebook event to ask all who joined to send an email recommending me for the job. Over a hundred of my friends sent letters of recommendation, including some written by active and retired Army Officers which could have gotten me into Harvard. After being interviewed over the phone, I was flown to New York City to appear on NBC’s Today Show. After joining Gene Simmons and the hosts of the show, Gene revealed that out of over 2000 applicants, I was chosen . Needless to say, my excitement was almost overwhelming. It would become the greatest summer of my life.
