Guitars for Vets

More than 800,000 US Military Veterans suffer from the effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). In fact, more soldiers have committed suicide since the Vietnam War than have died in actual battle. Fortunately, 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.

You may be wondering why we are selling guitars on Reverb instead of giving them to veterans? The answer is that the money raised from this collection of just a few guitars, will help us to purchase several dozen brand new acoustic guitars for our Veterans. We want to reach as many Vets as we can. Help us do this by purchasing from our Reverb shop today!

Guitars for Vets is a non-profit organization that was founded in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 2007. We currently have over 90 chapters with more than 400 volunteers nationwide. Since our inception, Guitars for Vets has fulfilled over 30,000 lessons and distributed over 3,000 guitars, free to military veterans.
