I'm Private Tiffany Hafner from Tucson, Arizona; I'm answering a question from Nathan in Syracuse, Indiana, his question was; "What was the hardest part of it all?"

I would say, mentally or physically, mentally if you're not strong mentally that parts going to be pretty hard, because they like to play mind games and just if you can take the yelling. But physically, PT is pretty tough but, if you're pretty active PT shouldn't be a problem it just will help you along.

The hardest part for me was mental and being away from my family. But in the end you eventually get to see your family, so. Just being away from home and not having freedom, basically for however many weeks you'll be here that's the hardest part of it all.
