ROANOKE CO, Va.
Mike Rindorf will tell you he isn't the biggest KISS fan, he doesn't wear the makeup or anything.
But he has loved the band since he was a kid.
"I remember in kindergarten we used to go to school and we all carried our lunch pails. Everybody had Starsky and Hutch and Dukes of Hazzard, always carried a KISS lunch box," Rindorf told WDBJ7.
Rindorf has been to an eleven KISS concerts, he even has tickets to the upcoming show in Bristow.
Now, he has the chance to meet his icons.
Boomer magazine is holding a contest to allow a veteran to interview KISS.
There are just six finalists, and this Iraq War veteran from Roanoke County is one of them.
He's hoping to win.
"It will be a dream come true obviously but they're going to have to pull out the smelling salts because I'm going to hit the floor and pass out," said Rindorf.
When he wakes up, he plans to ask the band veteran related questions.
On its website, KISS encourages businesses to hire a vet.
Rindorf is thankful and honored the band has taken up this cause.
"Out of the millions of members of KISS army I know they're reading it, you can't be touch not more than that anyways, for them to even think of me for one minute whoa, that's awesome," said Rindorf.
It will be even more awesome if he can win this contest.

The contest ends Monday.
