New OWN Reality Show ‘Married to the Army: Alaska’

When Yolanda Goins was approached to participate in OWN’s upcoming reality series “Married to the Army: Alaska,” the brigade commander’s wife and self-described Army brat’s initial thoughts were a resounding hell to the no.

“I didn’t want to do it. When they asked me to come to an interview, I did not want to do it,” she said. But, during the interview process for the show, the mom with a 20-year-old son at West Point was asked several questions that caused her to become cognizant of the role that Army wives play.

    I will give it a chance but I pray that it’s not a bunch of women gathering around a fire to cry about their husbands being deployed or whining about how “hard” it is to be a military spouse. I’d be lying if I said that I am not tired of seeing military wives portrayed that way. They are so much more than depressed beings. I hope that this show helps to show the up side.

    I caught this on the OWN On Demand channel and it is pretty good! Having worked for the Army (as a civilian) its good to see the “other side” of the military stories.
