The most empowering nine weeks-- (pause)--achieving what you never believed possible.
When you join the U.S. Army you have volunteered to be part of the largest family in the world. And to become a member you have to face a definitive initiation—Basic Combat Training.
But it’s not just about firing a weapon, rappelling down a tower, becoming physically fit, or learning to defend yourself.
You learn discipline, pride, teamwork, social skills, and Army Values such as Loyalty, Duty, and Respect.
But don’t take our word for it—ask questions of real soldiers, going through real training, and their drill sergeants, who can give real answers.
Simply click on ‘submit a question” to begin and tune into our exclusive Web series, Straight from Basic Training.
There’s strong, and then there’s Army Strong.
