Craig Morgan was awarded the Army’s Outstanding Civilian Service Medal last weekend in honor of his dedication to entertaining troops and their families around the world. The presentation took place during the Greater Los Angeles Chapter of the Association of the United States Army annual Army Ball on Saturday, June 23 in Huntington Beach, California.

Morgan, who served in the Army for nearly two decades, has done 15 overseas tours for the troops and performed for more than 37,000 service members and their families in all four corners of the world. He just returned to the U.S. after completing his 10th USO Tour to entertain U.S. military members stationed overseas. The eight-day tour, his third with the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, visited seven countries and included stops in western Tokyo, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Iraq and Spain as well as the Korean Peninsula where the U.S. Army veteran was once stationed.

The Outstanding Civilian Service Medal is one of the highest awards that the Department of the Army can bestow upon a civilian.
