We stand and salute these country veterans.
Country fans undoubtedly know George Strait, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, George Jones and others as musical legends. But it’s also worth noting that they — and other stars in the country music industry — have served our country in branches of the U.S. military. In fact, “That’s What I Love About Sunday” singer Craig Morgan, a 17-year Army and Army Reserves veteran, was recently inducted into the U.S. Field Artillery Hall of Fame. Morgan was inducted in a ceremony that was held at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, where he was previously stationed. To recognize other country artists who served our country, take a look through our gallery here.
