BRET MICHAELS showed off his caring side on Saturday (30Jul11) by meeting a group of injured U.S. soldiers just before he stepped on stage for a Poison concert.
The rockers were part of the line-up for the Outlaw Jam event at the Frederick Fairgrounds in Maryland, and frontman Michaels invited several American troops and their relatives backstage.
The star chatted with the military personnel, before posing for pictures with his special guests.
One snap was posted on the star's page, along with the caption: "Bret taking time to meet our soldiers, wounded warriors & their families before the Frederick show this weekend."
