Spouse Deployment Anthem

I came across this amazing video that a military spouse made regarding deployment.  She is a musician (Olivia Perez-Breland) and she composed this heart wrenching deployment video and then just to show she could do it all she directed, produced, and edited the video herself.  Warning, this will most likely make you cry, but it is absolutely beautiful.  I know it could apply to parents as well as spouses, but it is definitely from a spouse's perspective and worth watching and listening to.  I believe as a whole most Americans do a great job of supporting our troops, but I do believe at times the spouses get forgotten about during deployments and field training that takes them away from home sometimes up to 30 days at a time.  Let's not forget that they truly sacrifice a lot as well and we need to support and lift them up.
