Hello, my name is Specialist Bradley Whitlock; I'm from Houston, Texas. I'm answering a question from Adilio from Houston, Texas. Adillo's question is; "Do the drill instructors scream right at your face like in military movies?"

For the most part, they never get in your face unless you do something that is dangerous to one of your battle buddies or if you are just being disrespectful and not following your Army values.

The ways to talk to drill sergeants and any other cadre members would be, be respectful as possible, and answer and do everything they ask you to do.
