My name is Specialist Erin Bimler from Great Falls, Montana I'm answering a question for Barry from Kansas City he would like to know; "How long do you train each day during basic training?"

That really depends on the day in your schedule—up between normally 4 o'clock and 5 in the morning. Training goes till about say 5 or 6 p.m., depends on what you do during the day. Lights out are at 9 o'clock. We normally pull about 14-15 hour days during basic training. Training does vary each day so it kind of depends on your schedule, what the drill sergeants, what you have going for that day.
