Hello, my name is Specialist Nigel Perkins from Washington, DC and I'm answering a question from Evan from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. And the question is; "How can you prepare for basic?"

You want to make sure you focus on your sit-ups, your push-ups and a lot of running before you come to basic training. You're going to do a lot of exercising and you want to make sure you're ready.
