In a tranquil, tucked away Franklin farm, veterans like Chuck Palmer are sharing their stories.
After 10 deployments in 25 years, Palmer finally found a way to put his experiences into words.
“I’ve been a soldier for a really long time, but I’ve been retired for a couple of months now, this is just helping me process what I’ve been through,” said Palmer.
Statistics show one in three veterans suffer from the effects of PTSD, leading to a staggering 20 a day that commit suicide.
During this weekend retreat on Amy Grant and Vince Gill’s farm, veterans learned to cope with the effects of PTSD through music.
Free for veterans, and each leaves with a free guitar.
