LifeQuest Military Transitions, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides ill and wounded veterans with physical rehabilitation and training, adventure activities, and life-skills development, is inviting former service personnel to tell their stories at the second Songwriting Camp for Veterans. A component of transition programs designed for military members and their families, the camp will be held January 19-23 in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
The camp gathers a team of professional singer/songwriters to work with servicemen and women. This year, it will be directed by Austin-based musician Darden Smith. Veterans’ costs for the camp are covered, including travel, accommodations, and camp activities. Songs written at last year’s camp were performed at the Faces of Freedom concert, held September 11 at the World Arena in Colorado Springs.
“There is no program out there quite like ours because we’re built on the direct needs from active duty military units,” says LifeQuest Founder C.W. Conner. “Many nonprofits are reactive, but we are proactive – before they fall into harm’s way.” For more, visit mylq.org.
