KISS Surprises Wounded Vet With New Home

According to The Pulse Of Radio, iconic rockers KISS were in Cadott, Wisconsin, on Saturday night, July 20, to perform at the Rock Fest. The band thrilled the crowd but really made a major impact when they teamed up with the Military Warriors Support Foundation to donate a new home to a wounded war veteran.

The wounded war veteran Roman Rivera and his wife were presented a mortgage-free home during the group's set. Paul Stanley told the crowd, "We have special guests with us tonight I'd like to bring out . . . Roman Rivera and his wife Michelle, and Ken from Military Warriors Support Foundation, please join me out here. Roman is a Wisconsin native, everybody. He is also a decorated veteran. He was severely injured during his combat tour in Iraq by an improvised bomb. He is a tried-and-true hero."

Stanley added, "We have the privilege of presenting Roman and his family with a mortgage-free, two-story, four-bedroom, three-car attached garage home in Janesville, Wisconsin. Again, completely mortgage-free. Please join me in congratulating Roman, and thank you to everyone for their service to our country!"

The crowd went crazy and after hugging and receiving high fives, Rivera walked off the stage to fists pumps and the entire crowd chanting "U.SA., U.S.A., U.S.A."
