Welcome to Strumming for Vets!

Most of you are aware of the sacrifices our Veterans have made for us. What many people are not aware of is the continuing sacrifices vets face when they come home. Repeated surgeries and years of rehab and adjustment. Some pretty tough stuff.

Strumming for Vets is an organization that has come up with a way to help restore the feeling of joy and self-worth that can be lost after extreme trauma. With music therapy and donated guitars and teachers donating their time, these vets are given a new type of therapy that works!

Your donation of musical equipment (guitars, stands, tuners,  etc.) would be greatly appreciated. A generous donation of $100.00 will buy a vet a brand new guitar.

Once again I would like to thank Country Joe for his help and support of Strumming for Vets and Veterans in general. Joe gave us a couple of his guitars and amps and we really appreciate them and will go to good use, they will really help fill up our stage.
