Private Ethan Faxon

Private Ethan Faxon answers Kristin from Shawsville, Virginia who asks; "What are the first three weeks like in basic, how long does it take to get used to a routine and in my opinion what is the hardest thing about basic?"

I'm Private Ethan Faxon; I'm from Manchester, Vermont I'll be answering a question from Kristin from Shawsville, Virginia. She asks; "What are the first three weeks like in basic, how long does it take to get used to a routine and in my opinion what is the hardest thing about basic?"
The first three weeks like in basic is all about attention to detail, the little stuff. When a drill sergeant tells you what to do or gives you a block of instructions you need to listen and follow those instructions out to the fullest.
Now, how long does it get into a routine? It varies from Soldier to Soldier. One person may have a quick time and easy time doing it, where the other it may take a little bit longer.
And then, my opinion the hardest part about basic; is the ruck march for me. It was about 10 miles with 65 lbs on your back at a good pace. But as long as you keep motivated and keep your pace good you'll make it.
