Disabled Air Force Veteran Jason Morgan was celebrating the July 4th holiday boating on Lake Texoma when he got a surprise visit from Blake Shelton. Country Now reports that Shelton was fueling up at Highpoint Marina in Pottsboro, Texas when he learned a disabled Veteran was on a nearby boat and walked over to meet with Morgan and take a few pictures, which Morgan later shared on social media.
He wrote, “Great hanging out with Blake Shelton on our boat. Happy Independence Day. We were at the same gas dock and someone told Blake that a disabled veteran was in one of the boats gassing up and he come over to meet me. I was very appreciative.”
Staff Sergeant Jason Morgan’s website reveals that he was injured in South America while on a counter-narcotics mission in 1999 when the SUV he was riding in crashed into a steep ravine. He was thrown from the vehicle and his spine was crushed.
