The Meaning Behind the Name “Heartstring”

There are six strings on a guitar, five strings represent each branch of the military (Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, and Navy). The sixth string is the “Heartstring”, representing the loved ones of those service members and the millions of Americans who have been affected by issues related to not just PTSD and suicide, but issues such as addiction and mental health issues.
