Craig Morgan Helping Troops Come Home For The Holidays

11/15/2012

Craig Morgan is continuing in his efforts to support the troops. The country star and Army veteran is serving as the national spokesman for "Operation Ride Home," a campaign to raise money to help service members return home to spend the holidays with their loved ones. Morgan, who served in the Army for ten years, says it's a cause he can personally relate to. He explains that he's "been there," and knows "that empty feeling in your gut when you want to travel from your base home for the holidays but just don't have the money to do it." Craig adds that there are "so many of these heroes who have served multiple deployments overseas and haven't seen their families for years." He explains that while the military "does a wonderful job getting them back to their bases," it's "just not home." More information on "Operation Ride Home" is available at www.JDOperationRideHome.com.
