The Forgotten War

Date: July 25, 2015

 

Address:
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue

OPERATION SONG’s mission is to empower veterans and active duty military to tell their stories through the process of songwriting in creative and therapeutic settings. They are paired with top Nashville songwriters to share their experiences through music. Thus far, there have been more than 200 songs created – with more to come. The program was started by Nashville’s award winning songwriter Bob Regan.
Operation Song has been invited to perform “The Forgotten War,” at the 20th anniversary of the Korean War Memorial on the National Mall in Washington DC. This is the third national performance for the non-profit organization. On Memorial Day, Operation Song performed “The Last Monday in May,” at the WWII Memorial on the National Mall, as well as during the parade.
Operation Song organizes workshops and retreats for veterans and active military to hash out their experiences through lyrics, alongside professional songwriters. Recently, at a retreat at Dale Hollow Lake in Tennessee, one of the participating veterans was Carl Murphy, a veteran of the Korean War. He was paired with George Teren, a hit songwriter from Nashville. Together they wrote a song about Carl’s experiences as a young man in the Korean conflict. Carl wanted to call the song “The Forgotten War,” a term often used to describe the war.
“We always tell our veterans that if they tell their own story, it is likely to be the stories of others as well. That was the case when the Korean War Veterans Association heard the song,” said Regan. “They invited the writers and performers to the National Mall to perform the song as part of the ceremony at the Memorial, and of course we said, ‘we would be honored.’”
The vision of Operation Song is to become the premier songwriting organization serving the military community stateside and overseas, and to train others in their therapeutic model. It is a unique treatment option to help individuals recover from the stress of war. The participants need no musical background, only the desire to tell their story. In a typical session, the songwriter listens and encourages the military participants to share his or her experiences. Together, they arrange the narrative and the end result is a complete song they can call their own.
Over these past 2 years, Operation Song has had continuous weekly programs at the Alvin C. York Veterans Hospital in Murfreesboro, TN and in Clarksville, TN. They have put on songwriting retreats at the VA Women’s Center in Nashville, TN, The Wounded Warrior Project in Colorado Springs, CO, at Ft Benning, GA, at Fort Campbell KY, and in partnership with the VA and Erlanger Health Care in Chattanooga, TN. Tina Haynes, a board-certified music therapist who has worked over three decades with veterans, also contributes her services.
