Guitars For Vets (G4V) is a nonprofit organization that teaches guitar to veterans who are referred by doctors. The veterans gather each week for a few hours of guitar lessons. The program, opened to qualified vets, gives the participants free lessons and guitars. Once a veteran is referred to the free program, he or she is given a loaner acoustic guitar to use in the sessions that they can take home to use for practice. If they keep with it for 12 weeks, the national G4V program sends the veteran a new guitar that is theirs to keep.
