Seven Things You Should Never Say to a Vet

Produced by

Jason Moon, an Iraq War vet, talks to guest host Sean Cole about the seven things people say to veterans that alienate and anger them. Things like: "Glad you made it back home OK," and "What did you do over there?" While they seem like pleasantries, Moon says these comments can trigger trauma.  He tells his story of denying and then facing PTSD, and sharing what he's learned with veterans through music. He has started a non-profit and calls it Warrior Songs.

Jason is featured in the documentary film "On the Bridge." Here's the trailer:
