Army Wives (2007)
Let's take this show for what it is. It is a soap opera which happens to take place on an Army Base. As a Master Sergeant with over 23 years of service I can say this show isn't even close to a realistic portrayal of Military Spouses.
Where are all of the Korean, German, Italian, and other foreign spouses? What about the problems that they face with language and cultural issues? Why do all of the spouses in this show look like they belong on an TV modeling show? Military spouses are a reflection of the civilian population. They are very diverse and come in all shapes, sizes, races, and nationalities.
Also, no military clinic is going to allow someone to jump ahead of the line because of their rank or the rank of their spouses. They have to have an appointment just like anyone else.
Some of you may dismiss the uniform violations as nick picking, but to someone like me who takes pride in their uniform and how other wear it, it is important.
Like I said, this is TV entertainment and not very good entertainment at that. This is not a reflection on the real deal.
