A couple years ago, the Vet Center had a huge wait list for Veterans that wanted to take guitar lessons and JJO wanted to help out.  Since then, we have gotten through the previously HUGE waiting list, thanks to the great instructors that donate their time and JJO listeners that have made donations to Hawke’s Radiothon for Vets to fund the program.   
 
Veterans register at the Vet Center, take several weeks of lessons, and then participate in a graduation ceremony hosted by Randy Hawke and different JJO artists.  It is so amazing to see the looks on the graduates faces.  They earned and deserve to experience that joy at all times!  
 
There’s a long list of people that have helped to reinvigorate the program.  Julie and Nathan from the Vet Center, Brad and Lauri from Kapton Musik Knotes in Janesville, our fantastic instructors and JJO listeners!  THANK YOU all for your dedication to this program!
