Morgan first volunteered with the USO in 2002 and is a USO Merit Award recipient who has gone on to participate in eleven USO tours, where he has entertained more than 45,000 service members and military families in 15 countries. Among the locations Morgan has visited with the USO are the U.S., Guam, Japan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait, Greece, the United Kingdom, Portugal, Spain, Diego Garcia, Qatar, Italy and the Korean Peninsula where the singer was once stationed.

This marks his eleventh tour abroad with the USO and his sixteenth overseas tour for our troops.
