In a CNN interview with Jake Tapper, the singer revealed his thoughts on the issue of struggling veterans, saying that they are often left to their own devices to deal with the PTSD developed during war days.
“Life as you knew it is going to be different, and sometimes, people need that extra help,” he said.
Jon @BonJovi is honoring veterans and their service with his new song, "Unbroken" — and all proceeds from the song will go to a non-profit that provides service dogs to veterans in need. https://t.co/Y36mogr79r#VeteransDay #ThankYouForYourService pic.twitter.com/sQFrga3FGE

The Washington apartments have been in the making for about 10 years.
Jon Bon Jovi’s foundation also received help from nonprofit Help USA, whose aim is to combat the problem of homelessness in the United States.
The new facility will not just provide war veterans with cheap housing, but will also be offering various programs to help them get back on their feet.
And this isn’t the first time Jon Bon Jovi has shown he has a heart of gold.
Last year he opened a third Soul Kitchen restaurant to feed the poor and hungry.
