As part of their "Freedom to Rock" tour, KISS has partnered with the Hiring Our Heroes foundation to give veterans a chance to be a roadie for a day.

U.S. Navy Reserve Petty Officer Jody Harriman is native to Marion and now works as a postal carrier in Davenport. Jody was chosen by Hiring Our Heroes to be the band's roadie. Part of his duties include setting up VIP events for the day, on top of that he will get to meet the band, hear an acoustic set backstage, get two tickets for the show and will appear on stage during a military tribute.

Jody said in a news release: "Being a KISS roadie to me is like having every dream come true. This band has brought so much joy and happiness to my life since I first heard the magical sounds of 'Destroyer' in 1976," he said. "I was drawn to them as an 8-year-old boy, and they have been as much a part of my life then as they are now."
