Has anyone seen this yet? I missed the original airing of the show and am about to watch it at 5pm tonight. I haven't seen any previews for it and there is no description on the guide so I am curious to see what the E! channel has to investigate about us, lol!

Re: E! Investigates: Military Wives

  • Let's see if I remember correctly... it was how wives deal with PTSD, suicide attempts (both failed and not), soldiers KIA, more PTSD with TBI, and then there was one tiny little 5 minute part at the end where they talked to a wife who spends her time feeding the homeless people in her city.  I was hoping they'd focus more on the day to day stories of military spouses, especially the extraordinary ones like the lady at the end, but it ended up digging up the sad drama like every other documentary out there. 
  • Wow Leslie, you were right. Not what I had hoped it would be at all Sad I did like the story of the wife who conceived through IVF after her husband passed...

    Exactly this... It was a depressing look at the life of a military wife...
