The Mississippi Songwriters Alliance is a proud partner of Operation Song. Operation Song is a 501(c)(3) non-profit based in Nashville, Tennessee founded in 2012. The group pairs professional songwriters with veterans, active military, and their families to help them tell their stories through songs. Operation Song holds weekly workshops in Middle Tennessee and sponsor events and group retreats throughout the U.S. Those served need no musical background, only the desire to tell their story. In a typical session, the songwriter listens and encourages the participant to lay out the "puzzle pieces" of his or her experience. Together, they arrange those pieces into verses and choruses. The result is a complete song that they can call their own.
• Operation Song's Mission is to empower veterans and active duty military to tell their stories through the process of songwriting.
• Operation Song's Vision is to become the premier songwriting organization serving the active duty military and veteran community, to expand the programs stateside and overseas, and to train others in our model.
• Operation Song's Goal is to establish Operation Song as a unique and viable treatment option, using creative and integrative therapies to help individuals recover from the stress of war and improve the quality of their lives.
