Country singer, reality star and Army veteran Craig Morgan’s latest public showing of patriotism gifted the family of a fellow Army man with a mortgage-free Dickinson County, Tennessee home.
Wounded veteran Josh Ferguson, his wife and his three children were on hand for Morgan’s Feb. 23 show at the Grand Ole Opry. That’s where Morgan, Operation FINALLY HOME and the Home Builders Association of Middle Tennesee broke the big news. Ground breaking for the family’s new home is set for later this year.
Per the Operation FINALLY HOME website, Ferguson suffered injuries after returning to Iraq in 2007 that left him with an above the knee amputation, shrapnel pitted over his body, a surgically repaired leg, deteriorated hips, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and more. These injuries ended 20 years of military service. After recovering at the Walter Reed Medical Center, Ferguson gave back to others by joining the Wounded Warrior Brigade. For his service, Ferguson earned a Purple Heart, Combat Action Badge, GWOT Service Medal and Iraq Campaign Medal.
“Josh and his family represent the true heroes of this country,” Morgan said in a press release. “I am proud to be part of Operation FINALLY HOME and thanks to the community in Dickson County, we are able to build my buddy, Josh, and his family a home that they so deserve.”
