Hi, I'm Private First Class Richard Figueroa, I'm from Lynwood, California, and I'm answering a question from Dustin in Whittier, California his question is; "I am wondering on things that I can do to help make the first couple of weeks in basic training a little less stressful. Seeing as how you are in basic training, what would you recommend?"

I would recommend for one, paying attention to your drill sergeants, because they will make your life very, very difficult while you're here if you don't pay attention to detail.

They're going to stress that so much. Always keep trying don't give up, like when we're doing push-ups, just keep pushing, to the max.
