KISS honors vets, military personnel

Classic rock icons KISS have partnered with Hiring Our Heroes and Vet Tix to recognize veterans and members of the military this Saturday at the BMO Harris Bank Center as part of their North American “Freedom to Rock” tour.

Local Army National Guard Sgt. Jim Leffel has been selected by Hiring Our Heroes to be the band’s “Roadie for a Day” for Saturday’s show.

“As far as what this means to me, my dad is a huge KISS fan,” said Leffel. “Therefore, I grew up a huge KISS fan. When the opportunity arose for this, I knew it would be a great way to honor my father and to work with such an iconic band as KISS.”
