As part of the Annual Conference 2015, on Friday, April 23, join NAMI Wisconsin in partnership with Dryhootch Madison, for a live musical performance from Jason Moon, a local veteran, musician and founder of Warrior Songs, a non-profit organization that takes the stories provided by veterans and honors them by setting them to music and turning them into songs.
After returning from the Iraq War in 2004, Jason realized that there is both a terrible lack of awareness in the civilian community regarding their obligations to soldiers returning from war, and that the transition from warrior to civilian of soldiers returning from war is often handled very badly by our culture.
In recognition of this situation, in an attempt to rectify it, and in order to find healing himself from the rigors of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Jason has developed an interactive performance and discussion using music, information, and community designed to raise awareness among civilians of the needs of soldiers returning from war and to provide a transitional experience for soldiers who have returned from war.
It is Jason's mission to bring this experience where it is needed. Since January 2011 Jason has traveled over 200,000 miles, meeting with and making over 180 presentations to approximately 5,000 veterans and service men and women, and 15,000 civilians. He also gave out over 6,000 copies of “Trying to Find My Way Home” free to Veterans. None of this would have been accomplished without the generous donations he has received from those who support his mission.
We hope you can join us for this interactive musical production, beginning at 7:30 pm, April 23 at the Madison Marriott West in the Superior room! The show is FREE of charge and open to the public, so make sure to tell your friends!
Thank you to Dryhootch Madison for making this possible!
