(Webster) Operation Troop Aid (OTA), a nonprofit organization which supports deployed U.S. troops, set to honor Hank Williams Jr. with the 2013 Operation Troop Aid "Patriot Award." The presentation will take place on December 31st, when Williams headlines the New Year' Eve 'Bash on Broadway' in downtown Nashville, Tennessee.

Presented annually by OTA to celebrities that champion the men and women serving in the American Armed Forces, the southern rock and country legend was awarded the Eagle Trophy for his countless endeavors to support troops overseas and at local hospitals and for supporting numerous military charities. Well known for his role as an American Patriot, Williams, has performed at various military bases and continues to meet military personnel at every concert appearance.

"I am extremely honored to award Hank Williams Jr the 2013 Patriot Award. 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," says OTA founder and executive director Mark Woods.

Williams will join past Patriot Award recipients Toby Keith, Darryl Worley, Aaron Tippin, Gary Sinise, Charlie Daniels, Mark Wills, and KISS.
