Rockers Kiss thrilled a wounded war veteran at a gig in Wisconsin on Saturday night (20Jul13) by pulling him up onstage and handing him the keys to a new home.

The bandmembers were performing at Rock Fest when they halted the set and asked Roman Rivera and his wife to join them onstage.

Frontman Paul Stanley told the crowd, "We have special guests with us tonight I'd like to bring out... Roman Rivera and his wife Michelle... Roman is a Wisconsin native, everybody. He is also a decorated veteran. He was severely injured during his combat tour in Iraq by an improvised bomb. He is a tried-and-true hero.

"We have the privilege of presenting Roman and his family with a mortgage-free, two-storey, four-bedroom, three-car attached garage home in Janesville, Wisconsin. Again, completely mortgage-free. Please join me in congratulating Roman, and thank you to everyone for their service to our country!"

The big gift was made possible by officials at the charity Military Warriors Support Foundation.
