Five Finger Death Punch has always been a big supporter of the military. They have performed for troops over seas, and heard thousands of stories of how they have impacted lives of soldiers.
They even showed the effects war often has on soldiers that few ever think of in their "Wrong Side of Heaven" video. Clearly, the military is something very close to 5FDP's heart.
Yesterday, the US Military honored them with 2015 "Soldier Appreciation Award" of the United States Army. In their post about this, they said the only civilian to ever receive this award was Elvis Presley many decades ago, but Elvis was in the army at one point after being drafted. So, technically, he was not a civilian. Our research did not tell us much in regards of any civilians ever being honored with this award before Five Finger Death Punch, though it is possible that it happened before. If anyone has any information on this, please let us know so we can update this article with the correct information.
Congratulations to Five Finger Death Punch for receiving such a prestigious award!
