Hi, my name is Drill Sergeant Johnson from Bravo Company, 1/61 infantry Fort Jackson, South Carolina. My question is from Nikayla from Fort Smith, Arkansas; "Do girls have to cut their hair a shorter length at basic training?"

Nikayla, no you don't. However, they do have to have it permed, I mean not permed, but pinned up where it's not touching their shoulders.
