Giving life to war veterans through guitar lessons - – Rockford’s News Leader

Giving life to war veterans through guitar lessons


Power through music.  That's how one non-profit aims to reach out to military veterans in our area.

The newly formed Rockford Chapter of Guitars for Vets held a fundraiser at Applebees.

The group buys guitars for local veterans then finds them lessons so they learn how to play.

The group hopes to restore the feelings of joy and purpose for veterans struggling after they return from war.
