Alaska is home to more than 10,000 active-duty soldiers, about 7,500 of whom are currently deployed in Afghanistan. For the women whose husbands serve in the U.S. Army, "deployment" is not just an abstract word heard on the evening news. It's real, it's tough, and it turns their world upside down. Now, for the first time, the Pentagon allows cameras unprecedented access inside the lives of real-life Army wives in this new OWN docu-series.
On the series premiere of Married to the Army: Alaska, meet 7 women who find themselves in a unique sisterhood that only they can understand. From those who step into Army life for the first time, to seasoned Army wife veterans, watch as women come together and form the tightest of bonds. They share everything from life-threatening deployments, to the realities of motherhood in Army life, to navigating the emotional roller coaster of homecomings. This, and more, all set against the backdrop of the rugged, demanding and extreme conditions of the America's last frontier: Alaska.
