I was really glad to get this email about the Kid Rock Fan Community.I think it is a great idea for fans of Kid Rock to talk with each other. While many of his fans are there for the music and the party there is another aspect of Kid Rock that truly makes him very special. And that is the deep respect he has for the American Soldier. I was serving in Baghdad during Christmas of 2006 and was assigned as Kid Rocks escort. (Hopefully he remembers me... I was the one on Christmas during his last stop at Camp Liberty where I took the pictures of all soldiers with their cameras that posed with him). A lot of people think we, the military, are the heroes because we wear the uniform and when called to serve overseas do just that without question. But that is our job. However, I just wanted to say that I think Kid Rock is the true Hero. The fact that he has given up his Christmas Holidays with his family for the last couple of years to spend it with us in Iraq makes him someone special to those of us that serve. I honestly wonder if hell ever know how much that means to us. If our paths ever cross again, it will be true honor for me. I wish him all the best and I simply wanted to say thank you!
