A song in tribute to the military, I won't Untie the Ribbons

Okay, so I am being a proud mother here, but I love this song.  It is a tribute for the military and my son and co-writer want to contribute 1/3 of the meager earnings to the military. Meager means 1/3 of $1.25 or 99 cents depending whether it is downloaded from CDbaby or Amazon.  It is free to view on You Tube.

The back story on it is this. During the Vietnam era the mother of the vocalist started a song/poem which she never finished. Her daughter, the vocalist Shavonne, asked my son to finish it, music and words. She wanted to surprise her with it for Christmas. He did it in time for Sunday. She is now in her 80's and was delighted with it. He co-wrote, produced and published it. I’m prejudiced but I am not the only one who loves it. It has had nearly 1000  plays on YouTube since last Monday.

Update: I first thought this was for An 80th birthday, so if that is what I told you, I was wrong.
