Kari Bales, the wife of the Army staff sergeant accused in the massacre of 17 Afghan civilians, has given a brief  interview to a Washington military publication and Website.

She talks about the how she and her children are doing and how difficult it has been to come to grips with her situation, and the support she’s received.

Bales and her two children, ages 5 and 3, moved from their Lake Tapps home to the security of Joint Base Lewis-McChord after receiving news that her husband, on his third combat deployment,  was in custody for the March 11 attacks near Kandahar.
