As Taps echoes across upstate New York's Fort Drum, the military wives turn on the evening news, hoping for, and dreading, word of their husbands overseas. It's a ritual played out by women on bases across the nation. A prize-winning journalist, Karen Houppert spent a year among these women, joining them as they had babies, raised families, coached soccer-and attended funerals. Through heart-wrenching personal stories, she shows how military wives sacrifice some of the same personal liberties as their husbands do and yet garner none of the respect accorded their spouses. The army likes to say that it "recruits soldiers, but retains families," and speaks glowingly of the "Army Family Team." But this team is often deeply divided over strategy-and even goals.
