Hi, my name is Rosa Mercado and I'll be answering the question; "How many times will you be able to call your family?" And this question was by David from Clermont.

Well, how many times you'll be able to use the phone? Pretty much you get a phone call as soon as you arrive to basic training, and right after you finish all of your training at the end. And anywhere between it's all based on your drill sergeant's discretion. And also phone calls are earned so based on your platoon's performance.
