What can I say. My son graduated from boot camp on June 4, 2015. It was an experience not to be missed. Very exciting, emotional and proud moment. The base was hug and yes we got lost every time we try to get out. The golf course is breath taking. If you golf this is a must while there. Very... More

I came to Lackland Air Force Base on the June 18-21 for my boyfriend graduation! The base was nice but extremely large! We got lost several times a there isn't much shade at all lol. The BX was really large with tons of Starbucks!! Everyone was very respectable and the graduation was just wonderful!

I am a proud dependent of two parents who did their basic training here. The base is very nice. Watch out for lots of construction and be prepared to show proper identification

We enjoyed our visit at the base for our son's graduation. We enjoyed checking out all the old planes around the parade grounds especially the Black Bird. Stopped at one of the museums on base and enjoyed that. Would recommend. The Bowling alley was nice too.

It is also the home of Wilford Hall Ambulatory Hospital as well as a Air Museum. A great locale for military retirees of all services and frequented by family members proud of... More

My son graduated BMT and I was so amazed with this base. Compared to the Dover AF Base, it is like a different country..Lackland Base is huge compared to Dover. We shopped at the Exchange several times, took a tour of the Airman Museum, and took lots of pics in front of the old planes. I wouldn't mind my son... More

Attended BMT graduation in March... largest graduating ceremony. Nice BX/restaurants, but could definitely use some help in the parking area. Might just be because there were so many airmen graduating BMT but definitely difficult finding parking.

It is a city within a city! You can go to two museums and a show! There are plenty of restaurants to choose from. The best part is the ceremonies! They are spectacular! Bring comfortable shoes and COOL clothes.
