Guitars for the Troops
Being a veteran himself, Gordon Close has built a life-changing donation program, helping American veterans and troops receive acoustic guitars. Inspired by the troops coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan in the 2000s, Close volunteered to help donate guitars through a local musical organization. After realizing the donated guitars were too old and used, Close decided to expand his efforts, beginning with building new, affordable guitars from monetary donations.
Today, Close has sent over 900 guitars to veterans and troops overseas. The impact of these guitars are more than one can imagine. It doesn’t just give the troops musical entertainment and knowledge, but helps physical rehabilitation and provides music therapy to those with PTSD.
