Hi, I'm PFC Erin Elder I'm from Las Vegas, Nevada; I'm answering a question from David from Barrington, New Hampshire. His question is; "What part of training do you like the most?"

My favorite part of training was the obstacle courses because it challenged me physically and mentally. I pushed myself further than I thought I could and some of the obstacles took more courage than I knew that I didn't think I had. Like, if I had a fear of heights something like the Warrior Tower that was really scary for me. Like repelling down a tall tower or climbing up really high ladders and having to climb back down with no net below you that was really scary for me. So the obstacle courses were the best part of training for me.
