Earlier this week, country music super star, Taylor Swift, reached out to pay tribute to one of her biggest fans, Sgt. Wade Wilson, who was killed in Afghanistan on May 11th.
Swift heard about Wilson’s death when one of his fellow soldiers, Cpl. Josh Marreel, posted a message to her on YouTube,
This is a shout out to the one and only Taylor Swift. I know you have no idea who I am but this video isn’t about me. This is about a good buddy, Sgt. Wade D. Wilson, who was killed in action Friday, May 11, 2012 in Afghanistan… Anybody that knew Willy personally knew that he worshiped you. He even slept with a poster of you in between our beds in Afghanistan.
The 22-year-old singer responded in style – sending flowers and a handwritten note to Sgt. Wilson’s family, which read,
Wade, thank you for loving my music. I won’t forget it and I will never forget you. All my love, Taylor Swift.
Swift even followed up the flowers by calling the Wilsons to ask their permission to don their son’s dog tags in her next music video.
Talk about a class act!
