WELCOME HOME SERGEANT MENDEZ!
His family got the shock of a lifetime recently, thanks in part to Dierks Bentley!
The family thought they had the chance to go backstage at Dierks' concert in Fresno, California for a meet-and-greet with Dierks.
But when they got backstage, they got way more than they expected...
He later brought the family onstage during the show. Dierks said,
"I can’t begin to imagine the sacrifice of being away from your family for sometimes years. I love the fact that country music fans hold our military and their families in such high regard and always jump at the chance to say thank you. It was a really cool moment in the show, and a really special thing for me to be part of.”
