Jon Bon Jovi is paying homage to the United States military while telling the story of the reality that awaits the brave men and women who fought for the country upon their return home.

The NHL is working with the Grammy Award-winning band Bon Jovi and the 57-year-old lead vocalist to commemorate Veterans Day and Remembrance Day.

Jon Bon Jovi wrote the song "Unbroken" for the documentary "To Be of Service," which explores the life changes of military veterans from the introduction of trained service dogs to them dealing with post traumatic stress disorder. 

Produced by John Shanks, "Unbroken" is billed to spotlight military veterans living with the disorder while going deep into the soldier's point of view about the daily battle that remains after their service. Part of the lyrics read: "It's 18 months now I've been stateside with this medal on my chest. But there are things I can't remember and there are things I won't forget."

"This song is meant to honor America's veterans and their service, but I also wanted to take an unflinching look at the reality of their daily lives and struggles," Bon Jovi said in a statement.

A special NHL-edition of the music video for the song was released Monday.

Bon Jovi and Island Records will donate 100 percent of net proceeds from downloading "Unbroken" to the Patriotic Service Dog Foundation.

The "To Be of Service" documentary is in theaters and available for viewing on Netflix. The trailer and subsequent showings can be viewed at
