Korn’s Jonathan Davis Receives U.S. Flag Flown in Afghanistan From Air Force Supervisor
Korn frontman Jonathan Davis is an avid supporter of the U.S. military, as evidenced with his continued USO meet-and-greets and performances for U.S. servicemen and women and his participation in the recent 'Wounded Warriors' short film. The singer's support continued during a special meeting set up at the ShipRocked event in late November.
United States Air Force Shift Supervisor Michael Bowser attended the cruise performance, where he was finally able to meet his hard rock hero and present him with a flag flown over an Afghanistan base on Sept. 11, 2012. Video footage of the presentation may be seen below.
Bowser said he also collected flags for Five Finger Death Punch and Sevendust, who were also among his favorite bands, to present to them, as well. He told Davis, "Hopefully this can give back to you guys what you've given to me, because if it wasn't for rock music I wouldn't get through deployment." A moved Davis responded, "I know lots of people and I know the s--- you all are going through. This is amazing. This will definitely be displayed at our studio."
Just last fall, Davis was presented with the uniform of Marine Lance Cpl. William H. 'Billy' Crouse IV by his brother Ryan Rothman. Crouse was killed during a bombing in Afghanistan. It's expected that Bowser's flag will be displayed alongside Crouse's uniform and other gifts that band has received from the military over the years.
