"Army Wives" is a patriotic and thought-provoking drama about five military spouses who share friendship, secrets, home and heartache.
On a South Carolina military base, far from family and old friends, the five turn to each other for emotional support, companionship and advice, as their loved ones tackle the dangerous business of defending the country.
Elegant, educated Claudia Joy (Kim Delaney) serves as den mother to a disparate group that includes Roxy (Sally Pressman), a raucous, fun-loving bartender; Denise (Catherine Bell), who is hiding a secret that could destroy her family; Pamela (Brigid Brannagh), a surrogate mother trying to solve a financial crisis and Roland, a psychiatrist whose most important patient is his PTSD-afflicted wife (Wendy Davis). Bound together by pressures familiar to many military spouses, they build a bond that sustains them through sacrifice, loneliness and unforgiving conventions of Army life.
