New Bon Jovi Song ‘Unbroken’ Pays Tribute to Veterans and Their Service Dogs
The life-long impact that war can have on the lives of veterans is something the majority of us will never comprehend. Bon Jovi is paying tribute not only to the veterans suffering from PTSD, but the service dogs that aid them in his new song 'Unbroken.'
The song set to be featured in the new documentary 'To Be of Service' was released at the beginning of the month with a powerful video to accompany it. The ballad tells the story of a U.S. soldier with post-traumatic stress disorder on the home-front. The song is from a young soldier's point of view and the emotions he experiences.
The film that will feature the song, 'To Be of Service,' looks at the deep relationship between service dogs and veterans of the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Vietnam. The film is being released on Netflix today for Veterans Day.
'Unbroken' was written by Jon Bon Jovi and co-produced by John Shanks. “This song is meant to honor America’s veterans and their service, but I also wanted to take an unflinching look at the reality of their daily lives and struggles,” said Bon Jovi in a statement. The band will include the track on their upcoming album "2020".
Bon Jovi took to Twitter to announce that all proceeds from downloads of the charity single will benefit the Patriotic Service Dog Foundation which is a non-profit organization that provides service dogs to veterans and first responders in need.
