Read Transcript

Hey, I'm Private Stafford from Hopkinsville Kentucky and I have a question here from Cody, he's from Long View, Texas. His question is; "How good of a shape will you be in when you come out of basic training, and will you make good friends while you're there?"

Well Cody, I came out of basic training being in pretty good shape, but honestly PT is everything you put in, is everything you're going to get out. If you do a really good job you'll get a lot out of it.

And for the second part of your question, "Will you make good friends in the Army?" When you first get here at basic, you get assigned a battle buddy and you're going to learn everything about them; like where they're from, what they do, what they like, that'll pretty much be your best-friend. It's just depends on who you'll meet and if your personalities click and stuff like that.
