Operation Song is a non-profit based in Nashville Tennessee founded in 2012 that pairs professional songwriters with veterans, active military and their families to help them tell their stories through song.
The organization holds weekly workshops in Middle Tennessee and sponsor events and group retreats throughout the U.S.
Those served need no musical background, only the desire to tell their story.
In a typical session, the songwriter listens and encourages the participant to lay out the “puzzle pieces” of his or her experience. Together, they arrange those pieces into verses and choruses. The result is a complete song that they can call their own.
