What do you think? Will you be tuning in for this Army Wives special?
I didn’t get to watch the episode that aired on march 16 didn’t even know about it where can I go to watch it online?
If you have Comcast, you can probably still get it on Xfinity. If not, try Hulu or maybe even the Lifetime web site.
I lived the life of a military brat and a military wife. Army Wives did a wonderful and realistic job of protraying life as a military dependant. I will miss watching this great series. Thank you to the cast and crew for protraying our way of life with all of it’s ups and downs, and reminding me of the beautiful memories of my own life. I am sorry to see that it is ending. This salute was wonderful. I would also like to know why Catherine Bell did not participate.
I didn’t see an answer about why Catherine Bell wasn’t on reunion show. May we know why?
