I'm Private Singleton from Kansas City, Missouri and I'll be answering a question for Joe from Massachusetts. The question is; "I'm terrified of heights, so I was wondering what height is involved in basic training an if you had any tips for that aspects?"

I was terrified as well when we did the confidence course. The confidence course involves a lot of different tall obstacles that you have to trust your peers to get you over, its all teamwork. I did all right, but at first I was nervous because you’re having to trust somebody with no things around to secure you or to help you get down and up. But I probably would say just be calm. Develop a relationship, a strong relationship with your battle buddies, trust relationship and you’ll be fine, you’ll conquer that.
