The Prairie Village young man who set out to collect guitars to donate to veterans for an Eagle Scout project achieved his goal yesterday, making a presentation at Liberty Memorial as part of Veterans Day celebrations.

Bhavish Dinakar was flanked by his troopmates as he explained to the crowd how he had collected nearly two dozen guitars to donate to “Warrior Cry,” a non-profit that uses music therapy as a way to help returning vets cope with the trauma they experienced in combat.

Dinakar asked attendees at the Veterans Day ceremony to sign one of the guitars he had placed in the lobby with messages for the returned troops.
