Gene Simmons of the legendary rock band Kiss made a surprise visit to the Pentagon and surprised everyone with an emotional speech.
His visit wasn’t what anyone expected because he delivered a very personal moment to everyone there.
He recounted being a young immigrant from Israel and told about his mother being in the Holocaust. He called America “the promised land”.
He grew emotional as he talked about his mother who recently passed away at 93-years-old.
He also got emotional when he spoke about our military.
