Many 101st wives face mini baby boom alone
Looks like my sister isn't alone.
FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. - One by one, after their husbands returned from fighting in Afghanistan last summer, many of the soldiers' wives at Fort Campbell shared a secret: They were pregnant.
The births now of the "Afghani babies" - as the wives affectionately call them - about nine months after the soldiers came home is creating a mini baby boom. But the fathers aren't there to see their births because they are in Iraq.
