A Marine from Lee Center traded hats with Jason Aldean at a concert in Virginia.

Michael Cox was at Aldean's concert when a women he just met threw his hat onto the stage. Instead of throwing it back, Aldean traded for his cowboy hat, right off his head.


Being a good son, Cox gave the hat to his dad Randy. "He knew it would mean more to me than him," said Randy. "Plus I'd wear it more than he would."


Michael has been overseas three times and is currently stationed in North Carolina. He'll be discharged and will return home in June.

Thank you for your service Michael and welcome home soon.
