December 26, 2006 During this holiday season, let's not forget all of the brave members of the Armed Forces stationed throughout the world. Please remember their daily sacrifices on our behalf! In honor of the troops, we will be running a 4 part pictorial from Gene's October visit to Ft. Bragg. Known as the "Home of the Airborne and Special Operations Forces". Fort Bragg houses the 82nd Airborne Division and the XVIII Airborne Corps. The U.S. Army Special Operations Command and the U.S. Army Parachute Team (the Golden Knights) also call Fort Bragg home. This set of photos is from Gene's first stop upon arriving at Ft. Bragg - the base Hospital. There he visited with several injured soldiers and their families. Gene thanked each of the soldiers for "all that they do" and wished them well. He made it quite clear how he feels about them and how special they are to him and KISS. The meetings were filled with lots of laughs and hugs. One soldier made Gene a little nervous when he tried to remove his own IV so that he could put on the KISS shirt Gene had given him.
