While the country prepares for war, boot camps around the nation are training the troops of tomorrow.
WHSV's Erin Tate and photographer Ryan Berry are on location at Fort Jackson, South Carolina.
Starting Tuesday, they'll bring us daily reports as local recruits learn how to defend our country.
If you have a question you'd like Erin to ask the troops, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
And be sure to watch each night for our special report: Training the Troops.
