OWN recently announced that their upcoming inspirational series, MARRIED TO THE ARMY: ALASKA, is set to premiere on Nov. 11 at 10PM E/P.
Alaska is home to more than 10,000 active-duty soldiers, about 7,000 of whom were deployed to Afghanistan over the past two years. The war in Iraq may be over, but it continues in Afghanistan and for those families whose loved ones are still gone, life during deployment is challenging, especially in Alaska, an assignment the military considers as demanding as an overseas post. For the women whose husbands serve in the U.S. Army, deployment is not just an abstract word heard on the evening news. It's real, it?s tough and it turns their world upside down. Military wives find themselves in a unique sisterhood. The tightest of bonds are formed over fears of deployment, realities of Army life and the emotional roller coaster of homecomings ? all set against the backdrop of the rugged, demanding and extreme conditions of Alaska.
MARRIED TO THE ARMY: ALASKA is produced by 44 Blue Productions. The executive producer is Stephanie Noonan Drachkovitch.
