When the latest season of "Army Wives" premieres on June 8, thousands of men and women will be serving our nation all around the globe, making an impact on our lives in so many ways — by protecting our families and our interests abroad, making our own country safe for our kids and helping others in need along the way. Meanwhile, their families are also making some incredible sacrifices here at home, and "Army Wives" strives to tell some of those very stories of strength, endurance and love.

This election year, presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama have taken time out from the campaign trail to join Lifetime in saluting our dedicated troops and their loved ones. Watch the video messages from these two candidates.
