Read Transcript

My name is Private Ryan McDonald. I'm from Las Vegas, Nevada and my question is from Phillip from Houston, Texas. He writes; "During basic combat training are recruits allowed any free time away from training?"

The answer to that Phillip is yes, we get roughly an hour each day for personal time to use to do laundry, things of that nature, write letters but mainly to prepare for the next day's event. Throughout the course basic combat training you'll also receive phone call time and also the possibility of passes.
