3. Share something that stirs the patriotic spirit in you. Anything military related...seeing video clips of troops returning from deployment, hearing the National Anthem, God Bless America...etc, etc...
4. Where are you in the birth order in your family? Do you think your "placement" made a difference in your personality? I am the 2nd of five. I am 7 years younger than my older brother. Absolutely it made a difference. Not saying that they [the younger siblings] are less responsible than me, but you can see through the generations how society has impacted each of us. Great differences.
5. Name one trait you hope you carry that was evidenced in your parents or grandparents. Strong willed. My mom is a very strong person. She has been through a lot and while she may not feel as though she can keep on pushing through, she always does.

7. Approximately how many times do you wake during the night? What do you do to go back to sleep? Several. Unless I'm extremely exhausted. A bright screen usually makes my eyes tired...for example, computer screen, tv, cell phone, hand held gaming system.
