Hi, my name is Private Robert Davison I'm about to graduate basic training. I got a question from Alison from Eden Prairie, Minnesota she asks; "Do I have to sleep in a room with a bunch of other people or do you get rooms like in college in dorm rooms and do drill sergeant search your rooms?"

Yes, in all three accounts. There are bays that contain about 40 people that you'll have to bunk with; there are also small rooms that contain three to six other people.

And yes the drill sergeants do search your rooms for things that are called contraband that are not allowed in basic training.
