The statistics on military veterans suicides are a national tragedy. A group of songwriters in Nashville made the decision several years ago to do whatever they could to help. They started a program called Operation Song in which veterans are encouraged to share their memories are then taught how to turn them into a song. The program has been here in Chattanooga for about a year. Beginning today we are going to be talking to some of the veterans in the program and sharing the songs they have written. This episode begins with a song written by Paul Renner with the help of Don Goodman and Steve Dean, two veteran writers based in Nashville, who visit Chattanooga every week for the songwriting session.
