Show Synopsis

When career soldier Pete Griffin loses a leg in combat, he is sent back to America to serve at the army base near his disconnected family's home. To make matters worse, Pete's nurse wife Patty has been deployed to Afghanistan, leaving him to raise daredevil son Chris (17) and moody adolescent daughter Becky (15) by himself. Fortunately, helping Pete overcome the obstacles of single fatherhood are the neighborhood army wives: Sue Meyers, an older grounded woman, Emma Mountcastle, a sassy pregnant intellectual, Roberta Sommer, an overweight airhead, and Missy Wentworth, an overly sexual teenage bride.

Just when Pete thinks he might have everything together with his family, he receives a letter from the army informing him of his upcoming redeployment. "Greetings From Home" comes on the heels of AOL and Vuguru's recent collaborations, the runaway hit comedy "Little Women Big Cars" and the romantic comedy "Fetching", which had millions of views within the first two weeks of their respective launches.
