Private Lewis

Private Lewis answers Dustin from Redmond, Washington who asks; "What am I to expect when I first get there?"

I'm Private Lewis at Fort Benning going through basic training. I've a question from Dustin from Redmond, Washington; "What am I to expect when I first get there?"
Well, when you first get to basic training, the first thing that happens is you come in a bus and all of a sudden the drill sergeants are on the bus, start yelling at you telling you to get off. It's pretty hectic, but after that just be expected to have the drill sergeants around you 24/7. Watching over you, just don't screw up really and you'll be fine. They will yell, but they’re not yelling, it's not personal, just kind of shake it off. Do what you have to do to get through it, and eventually you'll get a lot of privileges. You get your cell phones ever once in a while, make calls, hang out and after awhile it'll get pretty good. So don’t worry about it too much.
