ARMY WIVES Episode 3 Review/Military Spouse Contest Deadline June 29

Lifetime TV’s episode 3 of season 2 of ARMY WIVES appears to have fallen off the back of a truck. It seemed to me as if I were watching a recycled TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL, or at the very least a recycled IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE.

There were no scenes with all four army wives, Joan was missing in action, and her army husband only had scenes of “shooting hoops.” There didn’t seem to be a center for the episode – only a series of vignettes. And, boy, suddenly Roxy’s hair is looking really good. What’s with that?

In contrast to an artificial-feeling episode of ARMY WIVES, those of you who are present or past military spouses still have time to enter the “Tell-Your-Own-Story” contest. See contest rules at for submissions of 500 words or less about your happiest or saddest or most significant military spouse moment.

The five grand prize winners will each receive a Season 1 ARMY WIVES DVD set from Lifetime, a $100 American Express Gift Card, and a copy of MRS. LIEUTENANT. The 10 2nd place winners will also receive a copy of MRS. LIEUTENANT.

If you have friends or relatives who are present or past military spouses, tell them about the contest. This is their chance to tell their own story!

You make some good points, it did remind me of "Touched By An Angel", but it still was nice to watch. Looks like next week episode there will be some tragedy again....

Yes, but Trevor is probably wounded and not killed in action. From the previews it appears there's no knock on the door -- Roxy gets a phone call.
