20 Fabulous Singles: France Hoang

They’re smart, funny, successful, and available—for now

France Hoang, 32

Job: Attorney and clerk for a DC Circuit judge. Education: BS in management from the US Military Academy at West Point; masters in criminal justice from Washburn University; JD from Georgetown. Hometown: Born in Saigon, Vietnam, and grew up in Tumwater, Washington. Now lives in Alexandria. Hobbies: Lately, I’ve been teaching Japanese swordsmanship, hosting dinner parties, and chairing a new community board to help Alexandria prepare for disasters. Dream date: With the right person, simply waiting for the Metro can be perfect. Deal breakers: Selfishness, inflexibility, dishonesty, and an inability to appreciate Ben’s Chili Bowl. Proudest achievement: As a 22-year-old second lieutenant in the Army fresh from Ranger School, I led a platoon of soldiers on a nine-month peacekeeping mission in Bosnia. I left with 32 soldiers and came home with 32 soldiers. Hidden talents: When I was in the fifth grade, I read volumes A through R of the World Book Encyclopedia for fun. To this day, I’m a rock star on trivia topics as long as they don’t begin with the letters S through Z. Favorite hangouts: My latest favorite is Rustico in Alexandria. And Pho 75 serves heaven in a bowl.
