Craig Morgan‘s service in the U.S. Army includes 10 years of active duty and seven years with the Reserves. In an interview with Army Times, Morgan talked about his experiences as a fire support specialist with the 82nd and 101st Airborne divisions.

“I was in Panama in 1989 for the ousting of (Manuel) Noriega,” he says. “I was actually stationed in Panama during that operation and assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division. I was also with the 82nd during Desert Storm.”

Morgan also served as an air assault instructor in South Korea before resigning to pursue music. He strummed the guitar and toyed with songwriting to blow off stress while in the Army, but never played shows or took the hobby seriously until he made it into a career.
