Operation Troop Aid, a nonprofit organization which supports deployed U.S. troops, will honor Hank Williams, Jr. with the 2013 Operation Troop Aid Patriot Award. The presentation will take place on New Year’s Eve when Hank Jr. headlines Nashville’s ‘Bash on Broadway’ celebration in downtown Nashville.

“I am extremely honored to award Hank Williams Jr the 2013 Patriot Award,” OTA founder and executive director Mark Woods said. “His art, legacy of family and Spirit of Patriotism is exactly why this award exists.  He never forgot his roots and why we have the Freedom we do in America.”

The Patriot Award is presented annually to celebrities that champion the men and women serving in the American Armed Forces. Hank Jr. was previously awarded the Eagle Trophy for his countless endeavors to support troops both overseas and at local hospitals and for supporting numerous military charities. He has performed at various military bases and continues to meet military personnel at every concert.

Past Patriot Award recipients include Toby Keith, Darryl Worley, Aaron Tippin, Gary Sinise, Charlie Daniels, Mark Wills and KISS.
