Justin Moore and BMLG President/CEO Scott Borchetta were jointly named the “Congressman Bill and Beverly Young Humanitarian of the Year” for their service and commitment to the morale and welfare of military families through the Crown Royal “Your Hero’s Name Here” contest by the Armed Forces Foundation. The pair were honored during the 10th annual Congressional Gala in Washington, D.C. on April 9.
“Although extremely grateful, I feel a little uncomfortable being honored at an event where there are decorated war heroes present,” Justin Moore said. “I feel that my contributions are much less significant than theirs. They are the true American heroes. However, I’m thrilled to know that what I do with the AFF has helped, and that it is appreciated by all. Both of my grandpas served in our military and they, along with my parents, instilled in me what our servicemen and women mean to us. It was an honor to tell some of them face to face last night. God bless our troops and God bless America.”
“The work that Patricia Driscoll and the Armed Forces Foundation is doing is extraordinary – and unfortunately – beyond necessary,” Scott Borchetta said. “She and the AFF have identified the real challenges that so many of our troops go through upon their reentry into society. This is the kind of organization that the Big Machine Label Group and I will always support.”
The ceremony brought together more than 75 Members of Congress to help honor our nation’s service members, veterans and their families. Throughout the event, AFF recognized Cessna and individuals for their commitment to the Foundation’s motto of “Serving those who Serve.” The AFF is a non-profit dedicated to supporting and advocating for active-duty military personnel, National Guardsmen, Reservists, military families and veterans.
