During a concert in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Friday, Keith welcomed 93-year-old retired Lt. Col. Harry Frizzell, of Oklahoma to the stage so that his audience could “see what a true American hero looks like,” CMT News reported.

Keith introduced Frizzell as a veteran who served in the U.S. military for 35 years and fought in three different wars: World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.

As the country music artist finished singing the two songs, he handed Frizzell the microphone.

“I would like to say just a few letters here,” Frizzell told a cheering audience. “God bless America.”

That’s when Keith appeared to get emotional. Keith is seen on video bending over as he is overcome with emotion. Moments later, he stands upright again, and uses his fingers to dab his eyes.

You would be hard-pressed to find a man who is more of a hero than this one, serving his country for over three decades and in three wars. Kudos to Toby Keith for recognizing this American hero!
