Artist Craig Morgan has become a spokesperson for Not Alone, an organization that empowers warriors and families dealing with combat stress through training, education, counseling and support. “When I heard about what Not Alone was doing, I knew I wanted to be involved,” said Morgan. “We can’t sit quietly aside while our country’s bravest are struggling. They put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms and they deserve to be honored and know that if they need help, they are not alone.”
Thousands of military men, women and their families struggle with the after effects of combat and the difficulties transitioning to life back at home. American soldiers of the 21st century are serving in combat longer than almost any U.S. soldiers in the nation’s past, often serving multiple deployments with little break in between. Three in 10 soldiers show signs of mental illness or marital problems after their third and fourth deployments. In his role as spokesperson for Not Alone, Craig will bring awareness to this resource through his website, media interviews and concert appearances. Craig is currently a part of Carrie Underwood’s “Play on” tour, where he will perform for hundreds of thousands of fans through June.
Prior to becoming a country music star, Craig Morgan spent over 10 years of active duty in the Army and additional years in the Army Reserves. He is an avid supporter of America’s military personnel and a recipient of the 2006 USO Merit Award. to learn more about Not Alone visit www.notalone.com or www.craigmorgan.com.
