    I love this show, the story line, the patriotism and pride of our country! This is the kind of show we need more of. When it ends it will be missed. I hope for at least one more season

  2. says

    WoW!!!!! I am heart broken, I need to know what happened to all the troops too, don;t let it end. I am not Military (Born in England but now consider USA my home), but I wish I was so I could honor my country, but I am a Wife & Mother and can relate. Please bring it back.

  3. bruce says

    my wife and i love this show; i am an ex serviceman, and can relate to alot of the story lines. my wife keeps the facial tissue companies in business, so help the economy and renew this great show! don’t pull the plug , as another network did prematurily, with Harry’s Law.

  4. Laurie says

    I am a huge fan… I have been Hoping all the hints and teasers are false advertisers. I am not a military wife, but I am a sister, daughter and friend of some service people, who have given everything for the country, why is it so hard to believe If some of us like the reality shows about the military – that we also wouldn’t want to see a drama about family life in the military… I really hope they keep it on

  5. Karen says

    We need closure. If this was the series finale, please at least do a 2 hr Lifetime movie to wrap things up. Why would you leave a series with such a HUGE cliffhanger!!! not fair! I want to know what happened to the troops on the plane!!!!!! Ideally, I would rather it come back for a full 7th season w/ Claudia joy back in the ranks.

  6. Irene says

    this show is so great and so much better that half the crap that is on now. Why end a good thing , especially do not end it the way season 6 ended last night

  7. katsmeow says

    Is it seriously an apocalypse for some people if they do end the show? lol In my opinion, it had a great run but what more can they write about “plot wise”? They have been there done that with every possible dramatic scenario. If the show so no biggie i guess ill live. lol

  8. Nancy Landers says

    I LOVE Army Wives and I want it to continue. I was Naval Nuclear Submariner wive for 10 yrs and then we got out. This show brings back all the memories I have from that time and we, too, made friends like is on the show – it is very realistic. The only guys we had were the ones that were on shore duty at the sub-base! Please keep this show on the air…there are so many other shows that you can get rid of…not this one!

  9. Jackie Hendrickson says

    Please don’t let it end this way, I know everyone is going there own way, but give it a final season to wrap it all up! This show is amazing!

  10. Shannon says

    I absolutely love this show… every week we have an Army Wives gathering just to watch. We have never missed an episode since season 1. The way season 6 ended cannot be the end we need to know what happened to the plane and all the other interesting things that were left in the air. Like Clausia joy, the move of Roxy, the adoption, and so much more… PLEASE don’t leave it to end like that without giving us another season. This is my FAVORITE show of all time and look forward to every season you have offered.

  11. Jennifer says

    NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Don’t let this be the End……the country needs entertainment and something to feel good about. The networks are wrong, who wants to watch reality tv when we already have enough REALTY in our lives ……..This is a great, heartwarming, and inspirational show

  12. Shelley says

    After watching the last episode(?), which aired tonight, it only leaves the viewer with one conclusion. I am a Vet, and a spouse of a retired military man. Army Wives got my attention from the first show to the last, and I for one, will be sad to see it taken off the air(?) Please say it isn’t so.
