Project Military Music

Project Military MusicBringing Great Music to Great Veterans

Thanks to BVL’s “Project Military Music,” veterans in care centers across the nation can enjoy once again the music of “their” bands. Through BVL, CD and DVD recordings from America’s finest military bands are collected and then distributed to every VA Medical Center and Veterans Home in the United States. Some of the bands participating in our program are:

  • Army Training & Doctrine Command Band, Ft. Eustis, VA
  • The United States Army Band, Fort Myer, VA
  • The United States Air Force Academy Band, Peterson AFB, CO
  • The United States Air Force Band of Liberty, Hanscom AFB, MA
  • USAF Band of Mid-America, Scott AFB, IL
  • The United States Air Force Heartland of America Band, Offutt AFB, NE
  • USAF Heritage of America Band, Langley AFB, VA

Here are just a few of the responses to our mailings:

From the Utah State Veterans Home:

“We want to thank you for the wonderful CDs you sent us. We use the music on a daily basis so it’s fun to have new music to listen to. It often reminds us of our years of service and helps us to feel appreciated for having served our country. Keep the music coming!”

From the Long Island State Veterans Home:

“The veterans would like to thank you for the music CDs. They will be used in our large recreational multi-purpose room on the PA system as well as on individual units. Remembering our veterans with the gift of music is meaningful and therapeutic. We look forward to listening to the music and hearing from you once again in the near future.”

From the Minnesota State Veterans Home:

“Our residents enjoy the opportunity to listen to new music and especially enjoy hearing from the fine musicians who are involved with the military bands.”
