Hi, I'm private Cesar Cavazos from Dallas, Texas and I'm want to answer a question from Terry from Lansing, Kansas; "How much do the drill sergeants actually yell at you and what is the point of the different phases?"

Well they kind of go hand-in-hand. The drill sergeants, red phase, always yelling at you, but they want to see how you'll react to chaos and confusion and basically just loud mouths. But as time goes on and you reach different phases they stop yelling at you. I mean they don't stop, but they get a little less tough on you and they get a little more settle down. They get to know you better and you really don't have to worry about them being in your ear all the time. And once you get to your last phase you really don't have to worry about them anymore. But that's just what I think, that's it, thanks.
