I am a conservative, pro military and a former US Navy sailor. When my wife first introduced me to Army Wives, I was immediately suspicious. My experience with Lifetime network is that most shows have a liberal theme, man bash or other aspect that I don't care for. Army Wives was a VERY pleasant surprise. The show deals, in my opinion, very realisticly with military life. There is no political theme to this. It is not out to bash the military or even any politicians.
As a conservative and veteran, I would recommend this show to any and all to watch whether you are liberal, conservative, middle of the road, etc. The show is not a political statement, it is a well done drama that deserves the positive attention it is getting.
