How to Stay Out of Trouble during Basic Training

Learn how to stay out of trouble during basic training in this Howcast video with Sergeant Michael Volkin.


My goal is to keep your palms off the pavement from doing extra pushups. Do not lean on anything, tip number 1. Tip number 2, do not put your hands in your pockets, alright? And don't bring an electric razor with you. Do not shave your head, and don't chew gum. Some people receive gum in the mail, which is contraband, and it will get confiscated. Don't say sorry or thank you to a drill sergeant. Leave your manners at home. Please don't conversate with a drill sergeant. 90% of what you're gonna say is yes,drill sergeant and no, drill sergeant. And also, don't talk when you're not supposed to. That gets everybody in trouble. Don't bring loud luggage, plain black luggage. You don't wanna attract attention to yourself. Hopefully, these tips will keep your palms off the pavement at basic training.
