A song for military spouses who have endured countless deployments and separations

"There You Go Again" is written and sung by Army wife, Olivia Perez-Breland. Olivia wrote this song for military spouses who have endured deployments and separations. It is important to note that the video includes active-duty Army Soldiers and their families who were at the time, preparing for deployment to Afghanistan and are currently still deployed.

Learn more about supporting the military family by visiting this LINK.

Half of Olivia's proceeds for the song will be given to the Fisher House Foundation to support military families.

"I am a military spouse who has experienced a void of support during a military deployment.  The Operation We Are Here website is my way of making a difference for other military families.  My hope is that this clearinghouse of resources will empower the military community and equip civilians to care."
