A: I’m the most different in my family because I served. I didn’t come from such a good place. The military gave me an out.

Almost Did: My wife and I tried for years to have a child. [Adoption] was something we were considering, but we got lucky.

A: My sister. I’m a feminist and believe in equality, but she takes it to the extreme, hating and putting down men.

Open Arms: I would. I like children of all different ethnicities and races.
