Henderson Soldier's Wife

Its a timeless story... Men go off to war, leaving their wives and children behind to hope that the war doesn't claim them as a casualty.

  Melanie Lafrenierre, of Henderson, is a soldiers wife. Her husband, 21 year old Jamie, is a P.F.C. in the Army's 101st Airborne Division... He's taking part in infantry operations in Iraq. When Jamie shipped out for duty, Melanie boarded up their home in Kentucky and moved back with her family in East Texas to take care of their two daughters.

  And with the war started, she's trying to do what her husband requested when he left, be strong. Being a true soldiers wife, she understands that war has inevitable casualties... And her husband could be one. She belongs to a military family support group that helps dependants with the stresses of wartime.
