Rock superstar Kid Rock hasn’t ever been one to bow to the politically correct entertainment industry, and a picture he recently posted online is proof of it. It’s a direct shot to uber-left Hollywood, and patriots across the country are giving him heavy applause for it.
Anyone who follows Kid Rock knows that he’s always been a proud American who strongly supports our brave men and women in the military, and neither position is all that popular in the entertainment world, especially Hollywood. However, it hasn’t stopped him from speaking up about his beliefs, and while it may not earn him praise from others in his industry, it certainly earns him a lot of support from red-blooded, patriotic Americans.
Recent pictures posted to Facebook show Kid Rock laughing and having fun with members of the military, which shows he’s more than willing to take time out of his busy schedule to brighten their days. Most stars won’t even acknowledge the sacrifices these men and women make for our freedom, yet along with paying our troops a visit whenever he can, Kid Rock also hosts fundraisers and charity events to raise money for active-duty soldiers and retired veterans.
In fact, Kid Rock partnered up with Operation Troop Aid, and together, they raised over $28,000 for our soldiers last year alone – and it’s the second year they did so. The previous year, he was also given the 2014 Patriot of the Year Award by the group to recognize his tireless efforts for our troops.
As if the work he did with Operation Troop Aid wasn’t enough, Kid Rock has his own program that sends care packages to our soldiers overseas for Christmas. After the first year was so successful, he continued doing it the following year and handed out over 500 of them, thanks to his own efforts and the generosity of his fans, who donated $25 each to help fund the initiative.
So whether or not you’re a fan of Kid Rock and his music (I am, and have been for some time), at least you can be a fan of his undying support of our brave men and women willing to put their lives on the line to defend our freedom. Not only is he a great musician, but Kid Rock is a great American, and his endless support of our troops shows it.
God Bless Kid Rock for his efforts, and God Bless our troops!
