Hi, I'm Private First Class Cody Stupfel from Salem, Oregon here to answer a question from Aquino from Berkley, California. And he's asking; "What happens whenever a recruit gets washed out of basic or fails the PFT?"

Well Aquino, I've seen a number of people get washed out but it's for those that choose not to be here, they don't want to be here. They're not putting out the effort. They don't have the heart. And ultimately they let the Army take action on them. So I would say if you are here for the right reasons you got nothing to worry about.
