Toby Keith has performed for soldiers all over the world. He also brings military members up on stage to sing with him during his concerts. But in Detroit, Sunday night, Toby did something he’s never done before. He administered the re-enlistment oath for Operations Specialst 2nd Class Jessie Siordia.

In attendance was Jessie’s Commanding Officer to make sure everything was legal. Toby said, “I like to do everything I can for our military, but I have to say, I’ve never done anything like this before.”

Jessie had written Dr. Don asking if there was any way he could get Toby to administer the oath. Jessie had attended one of Toby’s USO concerts in Afghanistan. Jessie got his wish and a bonus… Detroit’s own Kid Rock was also there to shake Jessie’s hand.
