AbstractVoices of Mexican Amy Wives is a study about the inner world of the army, a traditionally secluded institution with a primordial role in the history of Mexico. It focuses on a group usually absent in army studies, seeking to contribute to understanding their roles, behavior, and influence. It presents written and oral testimonies of army wives chronologically from the first years of the Revolution, 1910-1924, the Social Revolution 1925- 1950s, and the Contemporary times 1960s-2016. Studying them over three periods allows readers to see changes and continuities while providing a better understanding of the institution that they are part of, showing that army wives are not passive and invisible companions and contribute significantly to the institution and their country.
