BAC Spotlight Featuring: CreatiVets - Outpost Chicago

CreatiVets’ goal is to offer opportunities of relief and healing for the men and women who have sacrificed so much for our country. Their purpose is to use various forms of art, including songwriting, visual arts, music and creative writing, to help disabled veterans cope with service-related trauma (i.e., post-traumatic stress, or PTS) by fostering self-expression in a way that allows them to transform their stories of trauma and struggle into an art form that can inspire and motivate continued healing.
Music: Balance the Scale by CreatiVets, Bruce Wallace
