He’s sent home to work a desk job at the army base near his family’s home. Meanwhile his wife, Patty, an Army nurse, is deployed to Afghanistan. Pete is left to raise their two teenagers, 17-year-old Chris, portrayed by Hudson Thames, and 15-year-old Becky, played by Evie Thompson, by himself.
Pete receives help to raise Chris and Beck from his slacker brother-in-law, Archie, portrayed by Skyler Sone; loopy grandmother, Nana, played by Estelle Harris; and the neighborhood army wives: Sue Meyers, portrayayed by Missi Pyle, who has OCD; Emma Mountcastle, played by Nicole Randall Johnson, a sassy pregnant intellectual; Roberta Sommer, portrayed by Kristina Sexton, an airhead trying to lose weight before her husband returns; and Missy Wentworth, played Cherilyn Wilson, an overly provocative teenage bride. Pete realizes that while he loves his family, raising teenagers is more stressful than taking on enemy fire in combat.
