We are happy to announce the return of our rockin’ annual benefit concert, Rock to Remember. November 11 at DOC's Commerce Smokehouse and join us as we listen to Sam Llanas, Kharma Shotgun, and God's Outlaw. This is a great opportunity to honor and support our Veterans!
Thousands of our war Veterans are afflicted with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). In fact, more soldiers have committed suicide since the Vietnam War than have died in actual battle. But many are finding hope in an unlikely place: behind the wood and strings of an acoustic guitar. The healing power of music helps soldiers cope. That’s why we provide veterans with guitars and a forum to learn how to play. But we can't do it without your help. Please read on to learn more out about the program and how you can help those who served rediscover their joy through the power of music.
- Since 2007, the volunteers of Guitars for Vets have gifted more than 3,000 guitars and 30,000 lessons to US Military Veterans living with the effects of PTSD.
- The seventy G4V chapters throughout the USA support our Vets by fostering a community of teamwork, camaraderie and accomplishment.
- The healing power of music helps our brothers and sisters who have sacrificed in our name regain joy on their journey toward recovery.
