Travis Tritt was honored Wednesday (Aug. 22) by the Veterans of Foreign Wars with their VFW Hall of Fame Award. The ceremony was held at the group’s convention in Milwaukee. Previous award winners include George Foreman, Roger Staubach, Walter Payton, Johnny Unitas and Edward G. Robinson. Tritt has portrayed a disabled veteran named Mac Singleton in several of his music videos. He served as spokesman for the Disabled American Veterans from 1994 to 1996, and his long-form video, Travis Tritt, A Celebration, was shot during a performance for disabled veterans. 08/22/01
