Hi, my name is Shawn Muhler and I'm a PFC at Fort Leonard Wood and I'm going to answer a question from Josh from Lincoln, Michigan. His question is; "Is basic training all physical or more mental?"

Basic training can be physical on the fact of PT but in all reality I think it's all-mental. I think if you put your head to it and you think that you can do it I think anybody can make it through basic. I've had two roommates not make it and they just weren't set for it. But if you want to do it I think you can make it through basic training, easy as pie.
