“Hi guys, it’s Gene Simmons. We know you’re in Afghanistan, we know it’s a tough one, I just want you to know from my heart we love you,” Simmons said for the camera just before he had to stop and wipe his eyes.
Sgt. Dan Milburn with Army News was in awe that someone of Simmons’ stature would be moved to that extent for soldiers not even from his own country.
“I’m speechless. We had to pause the camera so he could have a moment. He’s quite a person,” said Milburn.
