With humor, candor, and a brazen attitude, Ricketts pulls back the curtain on a subculture many readers know, but few ever will experience. Counter to the dramatized snap shot seen on Lifetime's Army Wives, Ricketts digs into the personalities and posturing that officers' wives must survive daily--whether navigating a social event on post, suffering through a husband's prolonged deployment or reacting to a close friend's death in combat.
