Veteran Will Rock with KISS as New Roadie

May 23, 2012

In March, KISS started searching for a miltary veteran to hire as a roadie on their summer tour with Motley Crue. After getting over 1,900 resumes, the band found their man. This morning, on the Today show, Gene Simmons surprised veteran Paul Jordan with the good news:

Jordan, a 21-year veteran who served in both Iraq and Afghanistan, has been looking for work for a year-and-a-half since he retired from the military. He’ll now work for the “Hardest Band in the World.”

Kevin Schmiegel, a retired Marine Lieutenant Colonel and executive director of the U.S. Chamber’s Hiring Our Heroes program said, “We hope business owners across America will follow Gene Simmons’ call to action and realize the value of hiring our nation’s talented veterans and military spouses.”

Go to the Hiring Our Heroes website to find out about upcoming job fairs and how you can help veterans and military spouses get jobs.

Thanks so much to Gene Simmons and the rest of KISS.
