Gene Simmons Delivers a Surprising, Yet Powerful Message at the Pentagon

Gene Simmons, the lead singer of the iconic rock band KISS, made a surprise appearance at the Pentagon on Thursday to share his appreciation for the military and to share a rather personal story. 


After greeting service men and women, Simmons, an Israeli-born musician, choked up speaking about his late mother, who was placed in a Nazi concentration camp at the age of 14. He said when he was just a boy, his mom would always cry any time she saw the American flag. He didn't understand it as an 8-year-old, but he feels the impact now.


"I may have been born in the country that people throughout history have referred to as the Promised Land, but take my word for it, America is the Promised Land for everybody," Simmons said. "Don’t be ashamed, don’t hesitate. We need to teach young people to be comfortable saying God Bless America.”

Simmons returned to his birth country back in 2011, where he insisted that anyone who shuns or boycotts Israel is an "idiot."

"As an American, there’s no choice but to be supportive of Israel,” the rocker said.
