The wife of a Schofield Barracks soldier has released a song for military spouses who have endured countless deployments and separations.
It's called "There You Go Again" by Olivia Perez-Breland. The song is available on iTunes and the music video is on YouTube.
Perez-Breland said her husband has been a soldier for 10 years, many of which was spent in some form of physical separation.
"He has been deployed so many times, I have actually lost count," said Perez-Breland. "With back-to-back deployments, I don't think our story is unusual for the modern-day military family. Many of us have endured countless deployments and separations, and so I wrote a song that speaks to this reality."
The song was produced by Shawn Pimental and Michael Grande of Studio Ala Moana. The music video was directed, produced and edited by Perez-Breland and recorded by Alan Sangpan of Isle Media Hawaii.
Perez-Breland said no actors were used in the video. Only active duty Army soldiers from Schofield Barracks and their families were captured on video while preparing for deployments. These soldiers are now deployed to Afghanistan.
As of this writing, the video has more than 5,000 views on YouTube and it continues to circulate within the military community.
Half of the artist's proceeds from the song will go to the Fisher House Foundation to support military families.
Perez-Breland also has a website at Olivia Blue Music.
