Live and Lern

Ep. 6 / Dustin Row

Dustin Row is the founder of Songs4Soldiers, an organization based in Columbia, Illinois which helps area combat veterans in a variety of ways. The annual benefit concert is growing each year and in its seventh year, will host names like Chris Shiflett (Foo Fighters) and .38 Special with supporting acts of the country and rock variety. This ever-growing event is all from the mind and heart of Dustin, who is a combat veteran himself. Lern and Dustin sit down to discuss how this all happened. From being a part of a war after 9/11 to what it’s like organizing a community and doing something far greater than yourself. Dustin is full of compassion, an optimist at heart and someone to look up to when it comes to the internal question we all ask ourselves, ‘What can I do to make a difference in the world?’ He is definitely doing it.
