Craig Morgan is an army vet. He served 9 ½ years. 3 ½ with the 101st and 82nd Airborne Division and 6 in the reserves. So Veteran’s Day and honoring our military veterans is very important to him. In fact for the last 5 year’s Craig’s been the ambassador for Operation Finally Home, an organization that honors and helps wounded warriors. So when the Grand Ole Opry turned their weekly Saturday night show towards veterans they asked Craig to host and it could not have turned out better. Craig brought with him Justin Moore and Brantley Gilbert who are big supporters of our military.

Towards the end of the show Craig broke from the music and turned everyone’s attention toward a military veteran in the audience, Ethan LaBerge. LaBerge went on multiple combat missions in Afghanistan and was severely injured by a suicide bomber. Today LaBerge battles PTSD and a traumatic brain injury. When somebody puts their life on the line for their country, for you and I , it’s hard to come up with a proper way to say thank you. Saturday night Craig Morgan and Operation Finally Home may have found a way to properly do that for Sergeant LaBerge and his family. Take a listen.
