The Outstanding Civilian Service Medal, the highest honorary award which can be received by civilians was bestowed upon country singer, Craig Morgan by the U.S Department of Military last week.

Morgan, who served in the U.S army for upwards of 20 years has continued in his service to the department by going on tour in countries where members of the U.S military are stationed overseas to entertain them and lift their spirits. He recently returned from his 10th USO tour.

The event, which was conducted at Huntington Beach, CA took place on June 23.

"I was honored and proud to accept that medal on behalf of all the people that work tirelessly and effortlessly for our men and women serving," he said to FOX News. "When you're around those people that serve, they have a special gene in them, this sense of service. It's just such an honor to be around them and to share that."
