My travels have led me to San Antonio twice, where I helped plan and coordinate a music program specifically designed for veterans. The band commenced in October with 28 members, and they have made remarkable progress since then. We were incredibly fortunate to have the retired commander of The United States Air Force Band of the West lead the band. The veteran musicians have received immense support from other active and retired members of the Air Force Band.
I plan to follow the New Horizons Music approach, which involves creating a successful pilot program, testing it out in one or two additional locations, utilizing the video of the program to raise funds, and then expanding it to other locations.
