Success Story: Guitars for Vets Canada Across the Ocean


We are so excited to share a video of one of our amazing Guitars for Vets Canada students – Jose. A Veteran of the CAF, Jose lives in the Netherlands and assumed he was too far away to participate in the Guitars for Vets program. However, due to the dedication of creative volunteers, we were able to secure a donated guitar from a guitar store in his area, and connect him with a Guitars for Vets instructor for lessons via Skype. Look at him play now!

From Jose: “…Just wanted to give you an update – still going great with [my instructor]. [Playing] is helping me a lot with my PTSD. It’s so surprising to me how much it relaxes me.Once again thank you so very much for this gift and what a wonderful program this is.”
