Mia, a 22-year-old Army wife, was stationed in Fort Benning with her husband, Joe, her 5-year-old daughter, and her 1-year-old son. She was married at 18 after having her first child. Mia grew up in a small town in Arkansas with her mother and two sisters. She has a high school diploma and previously worked as a cashier before meeting Joe. When they met, she fell instantly in love and she was thrilled about the opportunity to move out of her town and see the world. Joe was 8 years older than Mia and had been deployed twice to Afghanistan. He was born and raised by a military father and lived and breathed the Army values and codes. He tired of his wife depending so much on him, but he was willing to work through it.
Fort Benning was their first station and she was new to the military way of life. She was overwhelmed at first but became very comfortable with the other wives. She made fast friends with several of them. Her relationship with Joe seemed blissful, until he started to make demands about whom she was allowed to befriend or where she was allowed to go shopping. Also, Joe began to ask her to speak in a certain tone and not to argue with him over minor issues in the house. Mia started to feel confined and restless. During her second pregnancy, she was feeling uncomfortable as she lay in bed and asked Joe to get her a glass of water. He refused to get up and she had gotten angry. When he grew tired of her pleas, he flipped her over off the bed onto the floor, sat on her legs and punched her in the face. She never reported him. Three months later, he pushed her into a wall. She finally confided in another military spouse who also shared her own experiences with other military spouses suffering with abusive husbands.
