    Cool, Candace! I love Army Wives and can’t wait for the season premiere on Sunday. I’ll spread the word about your giveaway, too!

  2. Traci says:

    I added a blog post about your fabulous giveaway! =)

  3. I am sooo excited for the premier and I like Claudia Joy the best. Not because I am anywhere close to being a General’s wife (AHAHAHAHA) but because she seems so grounded and calm and normal, and while I am not many (or any) of those things, I feel like she is the most relatable to me. :)

  4. patricia moneta says:

    Nice prizes – I love Army Wives, glad it will be back soon.

  5. Marilyn Wons says:

    I just started watching Army Wives on DVD. I love the show and I can relate best to Denise.

  6. Thomas Gibson says:

    My wife and I enjoy Army Wives as it brings back memories of how life was for us when we lived on 5 different Army bases during my 8 years of service.

  7. Patricia C. says:

  20. Elena says:

    I haven’t seen the show, but it looks interesting

  21. tracey byram says:

    I’ve never watched the series because I don’t have cable.

  22. April Brenay says:

    My favorite moment on the show was when Lenor got busted with her mic on, and she was talking nasty about everyone.

  23. Sarah B. says:

  29. Sarah B. says:

    I commented on the discussion “Where are you stationed?” (3/3)

  30. Chad K says:

    I haven’t seen the show, but I’d like to know how this got to a sixth season without me hearing about it!

  31. Steve Stone says:

    army wives is good and reminds me of living on military bases in middle school. great show.

  32. Kristina Maupin says:

    I think I relate to Roxie more because she was a single mom and then she meet her White Knight. She know that she can make it without a man but she still loves her man. She is there for her kids and family and her friend. I am a single mom and I know I can raise my kids on my own but having that special guy in my life is awesome too.

  33. Katrina says:

    I cant wait for the new season of Army Wives! I love Roxy cause she seems so confident and handles challenges well… and she is faced with many for sure! I also love her bestie Pam.. they 2 of them definitely do a great job of being strong women. I’m excited to see what happens between Pamela and Chase this season, if things will get better or worse with their reconciliation!

  34. I have a hard time watching because I can’t understand how they do it. I think any woman married to a serviceman is amazing.

  35. Zabrenda Langdon says:

    I love the show because I was an army wife apart of a group such as this one

  36. Connie says:

    My favorite is Claudia Joy.

  37. Laura Case says:

    I love this show! My favorite character is Roxy because she is fiesty.

  38. Sarah B. says:

    Yay the new season of Army Wives starts tonight! (Daily comment 3/4).

  39. Carolyn G says:

    The trailers have been teasing that one of the wives will die. I cannot wait to see who it is. I am very excited about this season!

  40. Elena says:

    I read the reviews and really want to see the new season as well as the old ones I didn’t see yet. – daily entry 3/4

  41. i like that the show focuses on the camraderie of army wives, as well as the good and bad that can come from being a military family.

  42. Leigh Vipperman says:

    Not sure if one of the wives leaves the show if it would even be the same. But I still love the show nonetheless.

  43. Leigh Vipperman says:

    Not sure if it would be the same without ALL the wives, but I still love the show none the less!!!

  44. Eileen Hester says:

    I haven’t watched the show, but intend to now.

  45. Christine M says:

    One of my favorite moments from the show is when the boys were goofing off during the national anthem and their stepdad quickly corrected them.

  46. Christine M says:

    I replied to Where are you stationed

  47. Erica Best says:

    i loved at the end of the last season when everyone was dance.

    I joined your community and commented on Military Moms Are My Heroes

  53. Teal says:

    I love this show! Roxy is hilarious- her character is so entertaining!

  54. I think the whole idea is really fun. Military wives have a lot of added stress that most of us can’t relate to, but want to be supportive of. I think this is a great way to increase awareness.

  55. Cindy Westerhaus says:

    My sister married an Army man. Seems like some of the story lines are plausible. Ha.
