My name is Private Brandon Schneider I'm from Nashville, Tennessee, I'm doing basic training at Fort Benning, Georgia. I've a question from Connor in Easton, Pennsylvania; "What's the average platoon size?"

The platoon I'm in, along with the 3 other in our company, it has on average I think 56 guys per unit. It takes a little adjusting living with that many people everyday, but it becomes more and more home everyday.
