I wrote to you about your hard work for people and kids with diabetes. Now, I come to you at a different angle. My Dad, Ronald Hugh Hall was a member of H-Troop 17th Calvary in the US Army from 1968-1971, when he went to his permanent resting place. He served a small time in Korea and 3 tours in Vietnam. It was upon that your, that he came across a land mine and was KIA. He saved 3 lives that day and it’s said somewhere that greater love hath no man than one that lays down his life for his friends. I was 3 months old when he was killed and 8 months old when he got killed. I play your song, “Something to Believe In” and think of my Dad often. When I see a soldier, I go up to that person and ask to shake their hand and I tell them,”Thank your for your unselfish service to our country”.
Thank you Bret for your support for our country’s troops, veterans and wounded warriors!
Rock on Bret! I love you!

Hello! My name is name is Ann-Marie Collins and I am currently serving in the Air Force. I have been a fan of Bret Michaels and Poison since I was in middle school. My cousin, Eddie George, who I know is looking down at me from Heaven, got me into Poison. I can remember her going to concerts and some how she would always get back stage passes to see Poison. The stories she would tell would bring a huge smile to her face. The pictures she would show me would make me feel like I was right there with her. Eddie probably had one of the biggest heart in the world. When she was younger she was paralyzed from the waist down but that did not stop her from living life and making sure that she went to every Poison concert she could.
Well a couple of Christmas’s ago I went to visit my aunt, Eddie’s mom and we got to talking about how much we missed her beautiful smiling face. I also told my aunt that because of Eddie, I am such a huge fan of Bret Michaels and Poison. She told me how Bret Michaels wrote a letter to my aunt saying how sorry he was to hear of Eddie’s passing. How many people would can you say would actually do that? I can’t think of many but it goes to show how genuine that Bret Michaels is as an person.
I feel like through Eddie that I am keeping the tradition alive. As mentioned earlier, I am currently serving in the Air Force. I am currently deployed in the Middle East but I am going to be returning home in May. As soon as I saw that Bret Michaels was playing somewhere close to me, I made sure I bought tickets for the show. His May 25th show will be my first concert I go to after returning home. In the past, I have been to many Poison concerts but never had the opportunity to meet Bret Michaels. I certainly hope that I can meet him and know why that my cousin always had such a big smile on her face when she spoke of him.
His support for the military, touches my heart. Every concert I have been to, he always thanks the military for their service and it always greatly appreciated. Thank you Bret Michaels for all your support and hopefully one day I can meet you.
