My name is Specialist Kristen Lindberg from Minneapolis, Minnesota and I'm answering a question from Kristal from Cary, North Carolina. She wants to know; "What's the best advice you can give me to survive basic training?"

The best advice I can give you is to expect change and embrace it. It's not something to be afraid of. It's not something to be worried about. Your schedule might change during the day. You might have to get up a little earlier. Chow might be a little later, it's ok, they'll still feed you. It might change for the week you might get some extra training. Your training might change up a little bit. It's alright you'll still get it. So just expect change, embrace it and have a good time.
