I'm Private De'Andre Howard I'm from Morris, Kansas; my question is from William from Utah, his question is; "I'm getting ready to enter the Army is it normal to be a little nervous?"

Honestly, it is normal to be a little nervous. People really haven't experienced not being away from their family and it's a whole new experience for a lot of people.

And most everybody here that I've came with is nervous, is just as well as I was, and it's just something new. But it's a good experience for everybody, and I hope you enjoy it when you enter the Army.
