My name is Private Henson I'm from Bentonville, Arkansas; I'd like to answer Devon's question from Antioch, Tennessee. Devon asks; "Is basic training hard?"

Well of course basic training is going to be hard in some points. But it's only as hard as you want to make it. If you have the right attitude, a positive attitude coming into basic training, you will make friends. You'll make lifelong friends that you'll serve with, and work with. Sure it's going to be physically demanding on you. But like I said as long as you have a good positive attitude and you always look at things like this is something you want to do, this is something you want to strive for, this is a goal that you're going to achieve. Then it's only going to be as hard as you make it. As long as you have that positive attitude you will make it and it will be good for you.
