The Metal of Honor Program is an initiative to help veterans coming home from overseas. For the past few years, Metal of Honor along with the IAVA (Iraq/Afghanistan Veterans of America) has been out on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival giving back to US Soldiers, both active duty and retired.
Out in the Festival during the day, people can stop by the Metal of Honor and IAVA Tents to support the cause. Every evening a soldier is brought up on stage to receive a signed guitar and be recognized for their service.

A big shoutout to Steve Robinson, a former Army Ranger and Veteran's Advocate who has instrumental in starting the Mayhem Festival Metal of Honor program and who sadly passed this year.
To all the veterans and active duty military personnel, we salute you!
Mayhem '14 was insane; from all the tons of people who came out this year to the bands giving it their all every day, we had a blast and we can't wait to do it again next year! We've put together some of our favorite highlights from the tour!
Think your city had the craziest pits this summer?! Check out the 2014 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival Mosh Pit Reel!
There were some crazy mosh pits out there this year and we caught them on video; from San Bernardino, CA to The Woodlands, TX and everywhere in between! Every band on the tour brought their own unique take on the pit. From Miss May I's marathon pit to Suicide Silence's Wall of Death, to the good old fashion mosh pit, not one person was standing still by the end of the show! A special thanks to @stratihov for getting some aerial footage in San Bernardino, CA and @mayhemjustin for making a few laps through the marathon pit in Atlanta, GA.
This is the last day of the 2014 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival and we're all sad it's coming to an end.
We had an amazing time out on the road with everyone over the summer and we can't wait to do it again next year. We take a look back on a few of our favorite moments from the summer. Houston was the perfect place to end this year with a bang and we couldn't have finished any better way. Thank you everyone, see you on the road in 2015!!!
We'd like to thank all the fans who came out this summer to rock out with us. From all the bands on the tour, thank you so much and see you in 2015! Check out this video spot with some folks that wanted to say thanks!
