FN Honors Veterans in Forged from Freedom Campaign

posted on November 15, 2020

FN America has launched a Forged from Freedom campaign that honors veterans of the U.S. military. The campaign began on Nov. 1 and ended in a special tribute to those who served on Veterans Day. The six-part video series explores FN’s deeply rooted connection to the U.S. military and its veterans through the voices of its employees and customers who served the uniform.

“Veterans Day is a particularly important day for our company,” said Mark Cherpes, president and CEO of FN America. “In just about every major conflict around the globe, an FN firearm was deployed alongside a U.S. service member, serving faithfully and reliably. It’s ingrained into every fiber of our business and is part of who we are as FN.”

The Forged from Freedom Series is live on FN’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter channels, as well as available on the FN website. The series includes Born of the Battlefield, which is a  reflection of the company’s legacy and current relationship with the U.S. Military and her allies. The short video shows key historic moments from the firm’s history of producing battle-proven firearms.

Voice of a Vet videos are already on the company’s YouTube channel, and provide the view of a prior service members. They feature several of FN’s veteran employees, showcasing their unique perspectives after having served in the U.S. military.

And on Veteran's Day, as the company’s culmination of its Veterans Day tribute, Operation Thanks, was unveiled. The special video features personal images from FN’s veteran employees and customers.

“I’m incredibly proud to showcase the stories of our employees as they share their perspectives as veterans,” Cherpes continued. “My hope is that we all take time to show our respect and give thanks to those who have served our country with distinction.”
