Operation Song & Warrior Outreach Team Up
Warrior Outreach and Operation Song put on a great show and helped veterans heal a little bit at the same time. The song writers from Nashville helped put the thoughts and feelings of the Veterans to music. It all happened at the Warrior Outreach Ranch in Fortson, Georgia over the weekend of March 14-15, 2014.
A Special thanks to all the Veterans who shared their stories and the song writers who put those thoughts to music and helped in the healing process.
What Is Operation Song?
Operation Song is a 501(c)(3) non-profit based in Nashville Tennessee founded in 2012. We pair professional songwriters with veterans, active military and their families to help them tell their stories through song. We hold weekly workshops in Middle Tennessee and sponsor events and group retreats throughout the U.S. Those we serve need no musical background, only the desire to tell their story. In a typical session, the songwriter listens and encourages the participant to lay out the "puzzle pieces" of his or her experience. Together, they arrange those pieces into verses and choruses. The result is a complete song that they can call their own
“I have been a music therapist for over 33 years and have witnessed the power of music touch many lives, but this past weekend, spent at Warrior Outreach, was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. CAMMO is so honored to have been a co-sponsor. Please help us bring our songwriting programs to service members, veterans, and their families everywhere.”
