I'm Specialist Justin Lester from Akron, Ohio and I'm answering a question from Jakaria from Fort Lauderdale and the question is; "What's a reason that a recruit might not graduate basic training besides not meeting physical requirements?"

I would say basically not following the Army Values. Mainly two of them; discipline and respect. If you have the discipline to follow the rules and do what you're told then you'll get through basic training pretty easily.

And if you respect your battle buddies, your drill sergeant and your cadre, there's nothing to worry about and you'll get though basic training with ease. You'll be out of here in 10 weeks.
