Lifetime’s ‘Army Wives’ More Than a TV Show
July 3, 2008 10:03 AM
Earlier this week several cast members from “Army Wives,” attended a red carpet event at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C.
They were there—joined by real army wives and military personnel—to screen the upcoming July 6 episode “The Hero Returns,” and to launch a postcard drive that will deliver moral support to military families.
For me, “Army Wives’ is appointment television, but it’s more than that: It’s public service at its best. And the timing couldn’t be better given the Independence Holiday weekend.
Regardless of how you feel about the war, let’s not forget the troops who are fighting to preserve our freedoms. I salute Lifetime for its important public service work here.
