Set at fictional U.S. Army Base Fort Marshall, "Army Wives" follows the struggles, dreams and friendships of a diverse group of women - and one man - living with their spouses and families. The enlisted characters are members of the fictional 23rd Airborne Division (based on the actual 82nd Airborne Division based at Fort Bragg in Fayetteville, North Carolina). The series itself is based on the book "Under the Sabers: The Unwritten Code of Army Wives" by Tanya Biank, who serves as a consultant on the show.
