Throughout her days, Denise Sherwood hasn’t known much outside of Army life. Her father is from a long line of military men. Moving from base to base in her life has made forming friendships difficult for her growing up.

After marrying Major Frank Sherwood, a man who always makes her feel loved and protected, the often shy and reserved Denise finally stopped pursuing her nursing studies. But life has been far from easy since then.

Dealing with her husband’s deployments and their son Jeremy’s emotional problems (not to mention his decision to enroll as well) forced to Denise to search within herself for strength and courage she didn't know she had.

From her - and many others - we've learned that support from other Army wives doesn't hurt.

Denise Sherwood even found courage - thankfully - to pursue her nursing career again.

I keep thinking I got the X. In Shirley Jackson's story The Lottery, you know, where they stone the woman to death. Cause you never think it's gonna happen to you, and then you draw the X and you're the one.
