Craig Morgan has been chosen as the national spokesperson for the Jack Daniel Distillery’s “Operation Ride Home.” For the second year in a row, this program will donate more than $100,000 to help services members go home for the holidays from based all across the country. Donations are being accepted through JDOperationRideHome.com, which will be used to supply travel vouchers for plane tickets and pre-paid debit cards for gas, lodging and food. Last year more than $24,000 in donations were collected from the public and they’re hoping to surpass that this year, to be able to help more military men and women go home for the holidays.
“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,” Craig said. “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.”
