Craig Morgan, who spent over 10 years of active duty in the Army and additional time in the Army Reserves, has a heightened appreciation of life after what he endured serving our country. Craig shares how being in the military impacted him the most:
"I was in the Army for almost 11 years. I was a guy who, if... my occupation, if you were seen, or talked to or discovered, you didn't do your job properly. So to go from that guy to being this guy, to where everybody needs to see you and know who you are and all this stuff, it's a little weird. And my family, the upbringing... I was raised in a small town, I have very, you know, middle-income family... just normal people, you know? Appreciative of the simple things and, I don't know, I just think it carried over into my life now and I try and teach my children the same thing. I mean, anything and everything we have can be taken away in a heartbeat. And I remember that every day."
Morgan is a spokesperson for the organization Not Alone. The mission is helping military men, women and their families who are struggling with the lasting effects of combat, helping them transition into life back home.
