Brantley Gilbert, Craig Morgan, Jewel, Lee Greenwood & More Help Celebrate Military-Bound High School Graduates

Craig Morgan, Brantley Gilbert, Jewel, Lee Greenwood and more are helping celebrate the 150,000 high school graduates who are enlisting in the U.S. Armed Services.

Our Community Salutes, a national nonprofit organization that supports high school seniors enlisting in the U.S. Armed Services after graduation, is hosting its inaugural America Salutes celebration: a one-hour, pre-recorded broadcast ceremony that will air multiple times in July and August.

Hosted by Terry Crews, the celebration features performances from Craig Morgan, Lee Greenwood, Jewel and Hannah Blaylock, with messages of support from Brantley Gilbert, Kurt Busch, Alice Cooper, Robert Irvine, Tom Izzo and more.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Our Community Salutes created America Salutes as an alternative to the in-person events that recognize high school graduates who have decided to join the military.

America Salutes will air via Our Community Salutes’ Facebook on:

  • July 16, 8:30 p.m. ET
  • July 28, 7:30 p.m. ET
  • Aug. 9, 7 p.m. ET

You can also sign a virtual Thank You Card to show your support..
