Thanks George. I always recommend fellow builders who want to get involved to check with their local Legion or Veterans Facility and see if they have a guitar jam night. Music is therapy so lots of Legions etc have some type of music therapy. 

If they do just drop off a few CBG's to give away. 

It took about a year for the Veteran Centre I deal with to realize I didn't have an motive and for some of the veteran to trust my intentions. Now, I'm like family. Its a good thing.

Thanks again and I hope this helps you get involved. More CBG's in the world is a good thing.
