Country singer Craig Morgan visited troops from the XVIII Airborne Corps in Kabul Tuesday as part of a tour to entertain deployed servicemembers.

Morgan, who served for 19 years in the Army, including nine years in the reserve, performed several songs at the new Kabul Compound. He used a guitar he borrowed from a soldier and later autographed it, according to a news release from U.S. Forces-Afghanistan.

“Craig Morgan has a special affinity with the men and women of the XVIII Airborne Corps, particularly because of his past service in the 82nd Airborne Division and that paratrooper lineage and linkage,” Col. Douglas F. Stitt, XVIII Airborne Corps and USFOR-A human resources director.
