Attended BMT graduation. Lackland did an amazing job running this. A couple of nice dining options on the base for your graduate such as the BBQ place which we enjoyed. The coin ceremony was extremely moving as was the graduation on Friday. You should rent a car to get around and I'd stay down in San Antonio along the river... More

We attended our Airman's BMT graduation. To see him grin when he saw us at the road side during the Airman's run was priceless! The review ceremony was flawless and by the time the classes turned onto the "bomb run" for their pass in review the atmosphere was electric with pride! A must-do, must-see for Air Force families everywhere. Did... More

We were there for graduation of our grandson from basic training. It was a very inspiring time for us all. His mom and dad and sisters were there and we all were given the utmost assistance from the base personnel during our stay. The base is constantly under construction to handle the growing influx of new recruits for training but... More

The base is huge, but has everything a person could need, stores, restaurants, churches, etc. Graduation is really wonderful, so glad I was able to attend!

Graduation was ok. Very disappointed with the comments made at it. One should NEVER bad mouth another branch of the military, and the C.O. did that during her speech. Very upsetting.

The base is huge! Upon checking in to see our loved one for his boot camp graduation they immedietely need the person you are visiting to come to the visiting office to voucher for your arrival. They take your picture, ask for your social, and this becomes your ticket to go in and out of base (don't loose it!) until... More

Liked the strong security. Everything closed early and could not access the store I was looking for late Saturday and Sunday everything was pretty much closed.
