Private First Class Frauenfeld answers Benjamin from Key Largo, Florida who asks; “Was basic training what you thought or were you surprised of the obstacles?”

I'm Private First Class Frauenfeld from Bravo 1/61 at Fort Jackson, South Carolina and I'm getting ready to graduate basic training next week. Benjamin from Key Largo, Florida asks; "Was basic training what you though or were you surprised of the obstacles?"
The obstacles, there weren't that many. It was everything I expected it to be, a little bit easy honestly. But like I said the first time, going through it all, you don't want to do it again. But at the end, you're going to be really proud of what you've done. And the biggest obstacle really is the gas chamber, but once you get through that it's all coast from there.
