The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the nonprofit organization Operation Song are offering a series of national music therapy retreats. In collaboration with VA Voluntary Services and Veterans Canteen Service, the four-day songwriting retreat connects Veterans with professional songwriters and VA therapists. Music therapy is just one component of VA’s Recreation Therapy programs. Veterans must be referred by their VA health care provider. No musical background is necessary. For more information, visit the VA Recreation Therapy website, the VA Voluntary Services website, and the Operation Song website.
