Jason Moon is a great man and advocate. I have had the honor to call him a friend and warrior brother. He has a great program and i have seen the magic first hand. - Jason Kamora, Air Force Combat Veteran
Jason Moon’s music is played during an opening Soldier’s Heart circle. The words hit home to the emotions bubbling at the surface. Tears of release and healing begin triggered from Jason’s prose. We begin our journey of trust, inquiry and healing amongst a room full of strangers who have quickly become family amidst the common denominator of war healing. Jason’s Music sets the stage. We love him and are grateful for his gift.

Jason, although I had purchased your CD after meeting you in Dryhootch a while ago, I just started listening to it when I had some quiet moments to REALLY LISTEN. I must say that it struck some deep chords with me, and there were some painful messages. Despite this, it is giving me some inspiration to continue on my healing journey. Thank you for your music.

I was first a consumer of Jason’s music. When listening I as I often do to music I miss the words and the meaning, until I heard a particular song “The Best of Me” it spoke to me. I felt like he was singing about me. My view of the world. It has helped me set that waypoint of where I was. I had the honor of later working with Jason in a PTSD awareness program in the Fox Valley. I think his music is an articulation of many combat veterans. It speaks for us who are hurting and by the way society sometimes…Read more
I’m not alone……this sums up only some of the impact Jason’s music on PTSD has had on me. For many years I was afraid to tell anyone about my problems as I thought they would not understand me and see me differently. Thanks to Jason’s music I was able to reenter treatment and get the help I needed for so long for my PTSD. Ashamed no more, I am living a more confident and fulfilling life and I have to thank Jason for his music that gave me the courage once more to fight for my freedom.

I am a mental health provider who works primarily with veterans who live with the aftermath of war. Many struggle to make sense of their experiences and are trying to figure out how to somehow fit into themselves and civilian society again. I am always looking for ways to have a conversation with veterans about what is happening to them in a manner that is both close to their experience and non-clinical so that they can really hear and absorb the information. I think your CD tells a story that is both very…Read more
Jason’s music touches veterans at an emotional level that is true to our experiences. As a fellow veteran, and doctoral student in counseling psychology, his music is relevant and therapeutic. In my personal opinion, it is stories such as his, that need to be heard, seen and felt by the individuals that have no idea of what our experiences were and how it affects the way we continue to experience life.

In response to a letter asking if my CD helped with a veteran:
Yes you did. Thank you. I gave it to my patient who has since been back in clinic looking to get off his narcotics and get his life back as best he can. Whether it was your CD or just a choice he made I am thankful for your willingness to donate it to him.

There is a belief that art is medicine. Jason Moon’s music is medicine for all who listen. The universal theme of “home” as described in his poignant song, “Trying to Find My Way Home”, reaches veterans and their families, as well as civilians. The lyrics gently tell his story of serving in the Iraq war, bringing forth not only his memories, but also inviting those who listen to the possibilities of healing and return. Jason’s zeal in using his music as a tool to share his experiences is present in his…Read more
