TV show description:      
This series is set at the Army Post of Fort Marshall, in Charleston, South Carolina. The lives and dramas of Roxy LeBlanc (Sally Pressman), Claudia Joy Holden (Kim Delaney), Denise Sherwood (Catherine Bell), Roland Burton (Sterling K. Brown) and Pamela Moran (Brigid Brannagh) all intertwine as they deal with being a spouse of a member serving in the Army.

Claudia is the wife to Col. Michael Holden (Brian McNamara) and has just arrived at Fort Marshall, a place where soldiers are either about to be shipped off to Iraq or are returning home from there.

She meets and befriends Denise, who has grown up on military bases her entire life. Denise was swept away by Major Frank Sherwood (Terry Serpico), but their recent relationship has become anything but easy.

In contrast, ex-cocktail waitress Roxy’s relationship to PFC Trevor LeBlanc (Drew Fuller) has come both easily and quickly as the two marry after knowing each other for only five days.

“Army husband” Roland is struggling both as a husband and a psychiatrist in trying to help his wife, Joan (Wendy Davis), cope with post-traumatic stress disorder after her tour of duty in Afghanistan.

And as any military family knows, sacrifice is often required, like in the home of former Boston police officer Pamela Moran (Brigid Branagh). She’s becoming a surrogate mother to enable both her and Delta Force husband Chase Moran (Jeremy Davidson) to claim extra benefits.

Based on the memoir Under the Sabres: The Unwritten Code of Army Wives by Tanya Biank, this drama details the battles occurring on the home front. For these women and men, being all you can be, sometimes costs everything.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed watching Army Wives 3 times – all 7 seasons. The actors are superb and the story line is slways interesting and moves nicely between scenes. My husband and I enjoy these shows more than any other shows or movies and neber get bored watching them a 2nd and 3rd time.

    I have told so many people to watch Army Wives…..please consider making Season 8!

    I started watching the show from the first show and I totally enjoyed the show. When I heard the show was going to be cancelled I was so so sorry to see it end. I have been waiting and waiting to see the last series to see how it was going to end and I just learned the last season was cancelled I feel jilted . How can they do this to us, fans. If it were not for us,fans, the show would not of been possible.
    So Disappointed!

    I think this was an excellent show! It was a show could connect with. This is one of the shows that should have lasted as long as MASH did! I still don’t understand why they end the good ones and not the bad ones!

    My name is Debbie and I was an army wife, my husband finish his tour of duty with the army in 1983, I loved the army life, and as they say you move from base to base, on to the next journey, Army Wives brought back some very good memories of my days as a army wife, the show details the ups and downs of what it is to be a military wife, at first you feel so along because you have left your home town and family to become an army wife, you are in a new place and don’t know anyone, and this new life starts for you and you meet new people who are going through the same thing and all at once you’ll become a family, who depend on each other for support through the good and bad times, and Army Wives detail the support they your new family gives in those times, the show took me back to so many of those memories, and made me think of my second family, and the show has helped a lot of army family to adjust and understand some of what they have to deal with, Army Wives is a beautify show and I laughed, when they laughed, cry when they cry, and pray when they pray, I felt their pain, heart aches, disappointments and whatever the scene gave to me from them. My youngest Daughter was in the army and I was scared for her, she was injured and given a medical discharge, and came home, she is doing well , and she has a daughter of her own , just made 4 years old. but I was more scared for my daughter then I was for my husband , maybe because at the time he was in there wasn’t this war going on, and army wives brings you to the real world of what is happening today. But as I sat here Sunday March 16, 2014 watching the final goodbye from Army Wives and cry because I loved Army Wives and I am very disappointed that they will no longer be on, I waited for each season to come out, and now I know that after Sunday March 16, 2014 there won’t be any more Army Wives to watch, to feel that warmth of knowing that there are others who share the same warmth of seeing how life in the military can be and that you aren’t along, because in the military you always have your family with you no matter where you move to, that really hurts and I will be praying that you will fine it in your hearts to bring Army Wives back for as long as there is a war going on for support for all of our Military Wives and Family, and for all Ex-military members. This was the best show that has ever come on, giving an real insight on what is really happening in the lives of military personnel and showing how the wives learn to deal with their husband’s and some wife coming and going not knowing if their spouse will return and in what condition they will return in, mentally and physically , Army Wives has in great detail given to army wives the ( Courage : strength of mind to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty), to stand strong and proud as a army wife. I will deeply miss my army family, and thank you’ll for bring this joy back to my life, and may the god lord above bless you’ll as you start your new journey.

    Best Wishes
    Debbie L. Jones

    I loved Army Wives. It was one of my favorite shows. I hope you get enough requests like mine to bring back the show, please

  8. Denine Brown says

    PLEASE bring Army Wives back. I really enjoyed and loved this show. The actors and actresses were just awesome. It was happy, sad and so real. The reality shows they keep having on now are the most horrible shows ever. Please reconsider putting this back on the air. I know the ratings had to be high. Thank you.

  9. Stephen Bontempo says
