Guitars For Vets
Music has long been known to heal, to help us deal, to really do lots of great things. Personally I don't know where I'd be without music, I just love it, as I am sure you do too. This is a pretty awesome program that got started in 2007. Three years later, the Minnesota chapter was added.
Guitars for Vets is a non-profit organization that begin in Milwaukee. There are over 30 chapters in 15 states, including Minnesota. A guitar instruction program they offer has been aimed at providing Veterans struggling with PTSD and other emotional distress a therapeutic alternative. They provide free guitar instruction, a new acoustic guitar and an accessory kit, as well as a structured program run by volunteers. G4V, (Guitars For Vets,) have offered over 12,000 guitar lessons and provided over 2,000 guitars to Veterans.
