Wives Of Wounded Veterans Share Their Experiences In New Book

For the last eight years, Barbara McNally has been sponsoring an event for the wives of wounded veterans.

She's turned the stories of those wives into a book — "Wounded Warrior, Wounded Wife: Not Just Surviving But Thriving."

"They are our biggest link to our wounded warriors," McNally said. "We all know that love heals, so I want to give these women the resources, the tools so that they can help heal their injured husbands and heal their families."

The event McNally sponsors for the wives of wounded warriors is called Support, Purpose & Appreciation Day, or SPA Day. It is being held on Sunday, Nov. 6 at the Hotel del Coronado and includes spa treatments, lunch and speakers.

On Midday Edition Tuesday, we speak to McNally and the wife of a wounded veteran, Twyla Williams, about their experiences and SPA Day.
