CREATIVETS :: @time
I couldn’t be prouder of Richard Casper (@veteranart
) and everyone involved with the @creativets
Magazine just did a feature on Richard and his work with veterans. Since moving to Nashville, I have become an ambassador for CreatiVets - a non-profit organization bringing veterans suffering from PTSD to Nashville to pair them with songwriters and write their stories. I have written with veterans of every rank from every branch who have served from the Vietnam War to Iraqi Freedom. A Marine sniper who have had to face the difficult decision of taking the lives of armed women and children. An Army medic who, at 18 years old, had to help reattached limbs while six feet underground in a bunker in Vietnam. A Marine infantryman who was ambushed while on the front line in Nasiriyah. There have been so many heartbreaking and eye opening stories that need to be shared. If you’re a songwriter and wish to get involved, please feel to reach out to me, Richard Casper (@veteranart
), or anyone involved with CreatiVets. I highly recommend it.
