I was born at Wilford Hall Hospital which is now being closed, I served from 1985-2002 there. Most of the museums and things to see are falling due to budget cutbacks. Static displays are nice but not as nice as the Security Police museum was. If your being assigned here get with someone before you venture off base.

We went to our granddaughters BMT graduation. It was a very moving experience. The temperatures were in the 100's. I don't know how those young adults stand the heat and humidity, but they adapt. Make sure you drink a lot of water if you are here in the summertime. It is very impressive how they can manage to graduate 35,000... More

Loved everything about it. We stayed on base and it was really nice. It's a small town within itself. Many places to eat on base.

A piece of history in America. This is where all the Air Force enlisted members begin their careers in service to America. In the past it was also the location of the Air Force Officer Training School (OTS).

I was at Lackland for 8 1/2 weeks from March to May 2013, and swore to myself I would never come back. Now after some thought, coming back might not be such a bad idea, because Lackland AFB is one of the greatest bases in the AF. The main base at Lackland is comprised of your BMT squadrons and such...

First of all, before you get all upset like the person that wrote a review because he thought he could just waltz onto a United States Air Force base, let's set everyone straight. The only folks that are allowed on base are active duty or retired military, their dependents, employees, and accompanied guests with the proper credentials. We went down... More
