Staff Sergeant Eddie Hall, an ex-Ranger with a difficult divorce and a loss of rank in his rearview mirror, is looking forward to a fresh start at Joint Base Marshall Bring with his second wife, Maggie, a former soldier herself. It was the strength of their friendship – and eventual love – that helped him weather his divorce and get his career back on track. Eddie has sole custody of his 14-year-old daughter, Caroline, but getting her to blend with Maggie and her 11-year-old son from a prior marriage is proving a challenge.
