Craig Morgan Was Formally Honored for Pulling Those Two Young Boys from a Burning House!

One of my favorite stories of the year happened last month when CRAIG MORGAN risked his life to rescue a couple of boys who were trapped inside a burning house. Craig didn't make a big deal out of it, because, as he said, "That's what you do." But it IS a big deal . . . so he was rightly honored for his efforts last Saturday night. Four members of the Tennessee City Volunteer Fire Department joined Craig backstage at the Grand Ole Opry. He was given an honorary lifetime membership to the Tennessee City Fire Department. That gives him full rights and privileges as a member, including his own helmet and department identification number, #565. Again, Craig tried to push the spotlight away from himself. He said, quote, "I'm humbled by this kind recognition from the Tennessee City Volunteer Fire Department and the National Volunteer Fire Council. They are the real hometown heroes."
