Hi, I'm Specialist Marlene Sorenson from Springfield, Missouri answering a question for Christian from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. His question is; "What is the hardest part of basic training?"

For me, the hardest part of basic training is being away from friends and family and being stuck with a bunch of other Soldiers who have different values and ideas from me. The best advice I can give you, is be open, be respectful of others, and just do your best to keep to yourself, and be patient with others.
