All right hello, my name is Private Scott Schaurer I'm from Dayton, Ohio I'd like to answer a few questions. First question for Ryan Chicago, Illinois; "Were you physically fit before you started basic training?"

Ryan I was very physically fit, I was part of the Future Soldier Program. I worked out 3-times a week and I still it doesn't matter, you're going to be broke down. They push you to your limit, your body will go through stress and you will make it through it. But I was physically fit and it didn't help.
