Get a bunch of spoilers about her character below!

Shields will play the brash and brilliant Air Force Col. Katherine “Kat” Young, who’s a crack pilot who can hold her own in the boys club atmosphere of the military.

She’ll almost immediately clash with Army Gen. Michael Holden (Brian McNamara) in her new assignment at Joint Base Marshall. Never one to step away from a fight, Kat is a fierce advocate for the Air Force as she and Holden jockey for their respective branches at the highest levels of power on base. Only after their initial skirmishes does Holden learn of Kat’s tragic past, discovering they have more in common than he thought.

‘Army Wives’ premieres Sunday March 10 at 10/9c.
