The video, shot in San Diego, California, incorporated a variety of military icons and emotional testimonies, kicking off their fiery performance with one goal in mind: respect our heroes.
The song’s chorus deeply struck listeners as it explosively admitted, “And they say all is fair in Love and War/ But that ain’t true, it’s wrong/ They ship you out to die for us/ Forget about you when you’re done.”
