Hi, I'm Private Bostic from Memphis, Tennessee; I'm here at Fort Jackson, South Carolina, finishing up my training here. I got a question from Josh from Oklahoma, he asks; "After your first haircut, do you have to continue shaving it off or can you let it grow out again?"

Within the first 72-hours after you get here, at your basic training site, you'll get your first haircut. After that, every two-weeks, you will have to have it cut again, until the completion of your basic training.
