Korn Fan Presents Uniform of Fallen Marine Brother to Jonathan Davis

Mary Ouellette,

Marine Lance Cpl. William H. ‘Billy’ Crouse IV was killed in a bombing in Helmand province, Afghanistan, in 2010, and  at a recent concert in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Crouse’s brother Ryan Rothman presented Korn frontman Jonathan Davis with his brother’s Marine uniform.

In a video (watch below), Rothman talks about his brother’s first Korn show. “When he was 13 years old, I took him to Indianapolis to see Korn. He was a lot bigger than me, and we went into the mosh pits. He was protecting me at that point, even though he was my little brother.”

The video intersperses shots of Korn playing live with Rothman talking about his brother. The most emotional part of the video is the actual presentation of the uniform. Rothman said, “I want to give this uniform formally to you on behalf of my family. The inspiration you have had on my life and the impact of things you’ve brought me through and the things we shared through you and your music, I wanted him to be with you.”

Davis was touched and honored by the presentation. “I feel for your loss. We’ve lost a lot of kids, but it wasn’t in vain, it was to keep our way of life going. I will have a special place for this, always.”

The Korn singer has done a lot of work for the USO and the Wounded Warriors, spending time visiting injured members of the military in hospitals.
