How would you explain “in basic” in the context?

 

Murph had been with us for ten months. He was eighteen years old. Now he was anonymous. The picture of him that would appear in the newspaper would be of him in Class A’s in basic, a few pimples on his chin. We’d never be able to see him that way again.

How would you explain “in basic” in the second to last sentence?
Thanks!

    "In basic" refers to basic training. The photo that would appear of him in the newspaper would be one taken of him at basic training in his class A uniform.
