My name is Private First Class Mira Roque. I'm from the Bronx, New York. The question is from Daniel from Bourbon, Missouri; "Do you drill instructors yell at you and is basic training hard?"

Your drill instructors do yell at you from the time you come off that bus to the time you fall asleep and you wakeup with them yelling at you. So you're getting yelled at most of your time over here. So you do want to do the right thing to not get yelled at.

Basic training at first is hard. You don't know what you are doing, you don't now what you're going to get yourself into, but as time goes by it gets easier. You start learning new things and it becomes easier with the help of your battle buddies. So everything becomes easier, but it's still always tough.
