NASHVILLE, TN (CelebrityAccess) — Country music legend Lee Greenwood will be honored with the Point of Light Award.
Created by the administration of President George H. W. Bush (41), the Point of Light Award is intended to recognize people and groups who make a meaningful change in communities in the U.S. Greenwood is being recognized for teaming up for more than 30 times for tours with the USO, and for his work as an ambassador for non-profit organization, Help A Hero.
“I count it a privilege to be in a position to brighten a veteran’s day or help unite the country after a tragedy like 9-11 and I am honored to be named as a Daily Point of Light by our beloved president, George H.W. Bush,” said Greenwood. “Knowing that this award is the largest organization dedicated to volunteer service, I consider this to be one of my most prestigious honors.”
“Lee inspires me and I still get goosebumps every time I hear him sing or watch him present the keys to a specially adapted home to one of our wounded warriors,” said Meredith Iler, Chairman Emeritus of Helping a Hero. “It was an honor to nominate Lee for the Daily Point of Light award and to surprise him with the Daily Point of Light Award alongside dozens of wounded warriors who love and respect him.”
