BLACK RIVER ENTERTAINMENT artist CRAIG MORGAN has been named the National Spokesperson for the JACK DANIELS “Operation Ride Home” program this holiday season.
“Operation Ride Home” is a program designed to assist U.S. military members reunite with their families by providing travel vouchers for plane tickets and pre-paid debit cards for gas, lodging and food.
MORGAN, a 10-year military veteran, said “Having been there, I know 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. There are so many of these heroes who have served multiple deployments overseas and haven’t seen their families for years. Our nation’s military does a wonderful job getting them back to their bases, but it’s just not home.”
JACK DANIELS will donate over $100,000 to the cause this year, hoping to surpass last year’s successful campaign that sent 721 FORT CAMPBELL, KY soldiers home for the holidays. In addition to JACK DANIELS’ contribution, the public donated more than $24,000 through the program’s official site, www.JDoperationridehome.com.
