There are many good qualities about Toby Keith, but perhaps the best one, in my opinion, is his undying love for our men and women in uniform. So this story should come as no surprise to how big his heart is.

Jerry Jerome, a World War II veteran, has been invited back to mark the 70th Anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attacks. And with the help of WBWI and Showdog Universal Music Recording Artist Keith, he will be in attendance at this event. During World War II, he was assigned to the 25th Infantry Division and served in the Philippines and on Guadalcanal. On December 7th, 1941, Pearl Harbor was bombed by the Japanese, while Jerome was stationed in Hawaii at the Schofield Barracks.
WBWI PD Ken Kohls was quoted as saying this:
“When the story of JERRY came across my desk I knew we had to do something, I called some friends who work for TOBY KEITH and in a matter of five minutes TOBY and they were on board to help in any way they could.”
Bids are now being accepted on a guitar donated by Keith, with more items to be added in the coming weeks. Please visit wbwifm.com for more details on the auction for a very worthwhile cause. Donations can also be made to Jerry Jerome/Pearl Harbor Fund, Bank Mutual, 1526 S. Main St., West Bend, WI.
