Being observant in BMT

I’m thinking of joining the military and I’ve spoken with a recruiter, but I have questions that I haven’t found answers to and that my recruiter is unfamiliar with. I understand that while on active duty in the space force, keeping Shabbat and kosher would be relatively easy, but what about BMT? Is there Halachic permission to train on shabbat? I know that in the actual military there is an heter for security purposes, but this is just training. Is it difficult to keep kosher? Is it allowed to use an electric razor in BMT, or will I have to grow out a beard? Any and all information would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
