Frets Nirvana and US Military Veterans Group announce July 25 Wounded Warriors Benefit concert.
Frets Nirvana, the premier fingerstyle guitar artist in the virtual world Second Life and US Military Veterans Group announce the sixth in the series of monthly concerts for the Wounded Warriors Project to be scheduled for July 25, 2010.
More than 30,000 troops have been injured in recent conflicts, many of them suffering traumatic brain injuries, amputations, and severe burns. Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) provides services and programs to ease their burdens and aid in the transition back to civilian life.
Initiated by Frets Nirvana and supported by the US Military Veterans Group in Second Life, this concert on July 25, 2010 is the sixth in the series to be scheduled monthly in 2010. Wounded Warriors is an organization that is Frets Nirvana and the US Military Veterans Group because as Frets Nirvana states “There are many great charitable organizations in the world that do great work. This is especially true in the United States. However, without the sacrifices our Veterans make none of these other charities could possibly be supported because tyranny would prevail and good causes could not be supported.”
Wounded Warriors concerts will feature premier Second Life Talent each month at Patriot Island. The concert on July 25 is scheduled from 5 -9PM SLT. Featured artists will be PonDman Haalan, Mankind Tracer, Frets Nirvana and Noma Falta.
ABOUT WOUNDED WARRIORS – Wounded Warrior Project began when several individuals took small, inspired actions to help others in need. The resulting objective was to provide tangible support for the severely wounded and help them on the road to healing, both physically and mentally. What had been initially viewed as a small contribution (compared with what the warriors had sacrificed while serving our country) has become WWP’s signature program:”WWP backpacks delivered bedside to wounded warriors.” Wounded Warriors program has developed significantly over the last several years to include advocacy, benefits counseling, caregivers retreats, coping/family services, peer mentoring, warriors to work and many other programs for the benefit of United States wounded veterans.
