The wife of a U.S. soldier stationed at Schofield Barracks, Hawaii, has released a song, "There You Go Again" dealing with the all too familiar heartache military families face when the military member deploys.

The song, by Olivia Perez-Breland is available on iTunes, and the artist said she will donate half the proceeds to the Fisher House Foundation, which supports military families.

A video of the song posted on YouTube last month has garnered more than 43,000 hits and seems to be striking a chord among listeners.

"This song gave me chills and tears," one comment said. "My husband and I just got done with a deployment a few months ago and It made me think of everything I thought about when he was gone. This is now my favorite song."

Perez-Breland said she produced the video using Schofield soldiers preparing to deploy to Afghanistan and their families bracing for the long separation.
