Thom Tran is the first Guitars for Vets comedian ambassador – not only can Thom make you laugh for hours on end, but he is also a respected Purple Heart Recipient and an awesome guitarist/musician.
Thom is a retired US Army Staff Sergeant who was severely injured on his fourth day in Iraq . Despite his injury, he completed his 12 month tour.
“Coming home from Iraq was another war”, Thom says, “My message to other Veterans that are struggling is very simple: Don’t hold it in. Don’t be afraid to talk”.
Guitars for Vets is excited to have Thom join our mission to share the healing power of music. Thom will be providing guitar lessons on his YouTube channel and other social platforms.
We hope that our Veterans can learn from Thom’s experience and begin the healing process.
