My name is Private First Class Leonguerrero, Miranda, I'm currently at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri basic training for AIT we have 3-days left. The question I have is from Caleb from Dora, Alabama. He asked; "If I join the Army Reserve, would I choose or would the recruiter choose where I go to basic training?"

Neither the recruiter nor you would choose where you go to basic training, it's in the computer. Once they put all your information in, the computer finds an opening, wherever there's an openings in basic training and you go there.
