In 2010 VETS Canada was formed by one man with the mission to help Canadian vets transition back into society and help them deal with the many issues they face. Many vets struggle with PTSD and the Guitars for Vets program has proven very successful in dealing with this. The program has grown across the country and is in real need of volunteer instructors and guitar donations. The program is a 10 week one on one guitar instruction course and at the end of the course the vet is presented with a guitar (acoustic). This is a beginner level course and nothing complex. Just to give the vet a start along the road of guitar playing and the love for the instrument. As many of us already know, playing is very therapeutic. Jim Lowther, the creator of Vets Canada has reached out to GC and its members for help with this program. I think it's something taylor made for our community and our special kind of membership. The only two groups of their kind in Canada that can benefit each other. The love of the guitar and helping people. The program operates all over the country so wherever you live you can help. For any of you that would like to either offer your help as a guitar instructor or donate an acoustic guitar to the program, please contact Jim through the website at VETSCANADA Use this thread to comment or let us know of any success stories and we can help spread the word about this great program.
