Freedom Isn't Free

 
Freedom Isn't Free

Five Finger Death Punch's latest song shines a spotlight on homeless military veterans and the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder.

Directed by Nick Peterson, the powerful video focuses on a specific group of soldiers and how they adapt once returning home. Staggering statistics are displayed over their vocals.  

There are 300,000 homeless vets, with 1.4 million at risk of becoming homeless, an estimated 460,000 veterans are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, the average for homeless veterans is six years on the streets and each year 5000 vets die by their own hands.
