Emmy Award nominated actor/comedian and veteran of the United States Marine Corps, Rob Riggle, will reprise his role as host for the evening, paying tribute to our service men and women spanning from World War II to the present day.
Noted celebrities will lend their voices to tell the stories of service and valor, including Terry Crews, John Cena, Laurence Fishburne, Gary Sinise, Mike Rowe, Allison Janney and Clint Eastwood. Joining American Valor as a presenter of these stories of service and sacrifice is Kyle Chandler, Ben Foster, Kellie Pickler, and Charlie Weber along with White House Correspondents Kyra Phillips (ABC News) and John Roberts (Fox News).
This very special program provides Americans at home the opportunity to meet the ordinary citizens who, through willing sacrifice in trying times, became heroes and legends.
“I’m thrilled to be a part of this amazing event for another year,” said Riggle. “As always, I am looking forward to not only meeting these heroes, but also hearing their compelling stories.” Riggle joined the United States Marine Corps at the age of 19 and rose through the ranks, serving in various countries including Albania, Kosovo, Liberia, and Afghanistan. Lieutenant Colonel Riggle retired from the Marine Corps Reserve, having served 23 years total (9 years active duty, 14 years in the reserves) and earned more than 22 medals and ribbons.
American Valor will spotlight and honor stories of heroism from the last 75 years, including:
“We are really looking forward to celebrating this year’s group of honorees,” said Tim Holbert, Executive Director of the American Veterans Center and Producer of American Valor. “Their heroic stories continue to inspire us all, and are a great reminder of the hard work, sacrifice and dedication that all armed service members put forward throughout their lives.”
