Inside the Obstacle Course(01:40)
Army National Guard recruits showcase their physical strength as they complete a demanding obstacle course. Army National Guard Soldiers attend Basic Combat Training (BCT) and receive exactly the same level of training as those who join Active Duty. Basic Training lasts for 10 weeks and teaches the Seven Core Army Values: Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity and Personal Courage.
