Hi, I'm Private First Class Fick, I'm from Ann Arbor, Michigan; and I got a couple of questions here. Tuesday from Rutledge, Tennessee asks; "What is the number one thing to remember at basic?"

I would say there's two number one things to remember at basic. One; you are not in charge. So listen to what you are told to do and do it, no more, no less. The second thing to remember is, it's a team effort. So don't ever do anything on your own that's going to compromise your buddy's safety. Or the overall well-being of your platoon or company. Hopefully that answers your question.
