FFDP has worked closely with veterans and law enforcement in the past. FFDP is intentional on who they hire to their crew, often recruiting veterans and employing multiple retired military members.

Over the years FFDP has released multiple songs as a tribute to law enforcement and military. Songs include Bad Company, Battle Born, Remember Everything, and Wrong Side of Heaven. Five Finger Death Punch has not only gone out of their way to support law enforcement and military with the platform they have in the music industry but they have also taken a proactive role in building public image for officers everywhere. Images just like this one snapped on Christmas Eve. As one officer was away from his family, this rockstar made a point to stop, help and shine a spotlight on our officers. Thank you Zoltan Bathory, we salute you.
