Eagle River native, Jason Moon, is a singer-songwriter, military veteran and survivor of post-traumatic stress disorder. He is the founder of Warrior Songs, Inc. in Madison, a non-profit dedicated to helping veterans cope with PTSD. Moon spoke with WXPR's Miranda Vander Leest about how music became his outlet when he was finding his way back into society as a civilian after a 10 year stint in the military, and how he's helping other veterans heal, too.
Jason Moon released his first album, Trying to Find My Way Home in 2010. The organization's second CD, If You Have to Ask Vol. 1, was released last November and features the words, music and experiences of other vets suffering from PTSD.
