The Oak Ridge Boys have been a part of our lives for decades and, in light of the group’s ongoing successes and bevy of fans, the four talented musicians are incredibly focused on giving back to the community — namely the United States military.

On August 8th, the Oak Ridge Boys received the Bob Hope Award for Excellence in Entertainment by the Congressional Medal of Honor Society, relative to the group’s work with The American Legion. The foursome lent its celebrity to The American Legion to help raise awareness for the detection and treatment of PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) in soldiers — active and veteran.

The prestigious award, which was named after Bob Hope due to the work he performed with the USO, was created to honor entertainers who have shown their commitment to the military through their works. Past recipients also include country artists Trace Adkins and Billy Ray Cyrus.
