Craig Morgan was officially appointed to Warrant Officer 1 in the Army Reserve over the weekend, with the swearing-in taking place at Huntsville, Alabama’s Redstone Arsenal. Morgan previously served in the Army and Army Reserve for 17 years with the 101st and 82nd Airborne Divisions; he returned to service last year and was sworn in to the Army Reserve on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry on July 29, 2023.
Morgan’s appointment ceremony was officiated by Chief Warrant Officer 3 William R. Green, along with John Clement (Deputy State Director/Military Advisor, US Senator Marsha Blackburn) and Craig’s wife, Karen Greer. Following his swearing-in as Warrant Officer 1, Craig performed the national anthem in uniform at 2024’s NFL Pro Bowl on Sunday, February 4th from Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida.
Morgan wrapped his headlining God, Family, Country Tour last year, in partnership with ‘Operation Finally Home.’ The tour followed the release of Morgan’s memoir last fall, titled ‘God, Family, Country’, which he co-wrote with New York Times bestselling author Jim DeFelice (who co-authored American Sniper).
