This base is huge! We went here for my husband's graduation; they have lots of places to eat and more than one BX, so that was great. A huge playground for the kids (thank goodness). The events here for the weekend were amazing!

If you want to join the AF, this is where you will start. Currently here for instructor training, but its good to see that discipline is the main focus for the new airmen. I hear them every morning instilling the "warrior ethos" into the new trainees. The last time that I was here in this capacity was over 17 years... More

My son and I were here for my brother's wedding last weekend. It was beautiful weather (75 degrees) and we stayed at the hotel on base. Nice accommodations, no worries about safety or anything like that. We spent some time walking around the base looking at the old war planes they have displayed, overall it was a fun and relaxing...

Great place to visit. You do need passes to get on base. But just a huge place to support our troops. God Bless America.

The base was huge. There was museums to see and lots of air planes to see in the fleet. The bowling alley you couldn't get into on Thursday or Friday. Tooo many people. It was very interesting. Attending graduation was an amazing event.

First, you must have access to a miliary base to enter. Not open for touring. I was stationed there in 1975 and wanted to return for nostalgic reasons. The base is easy to navigate and has an ITT for discount tickets. We purchased some for the Caverns and Wild Animal park. There are two Gateway Inns on base. The exchange... More

My son enjoyed the static displays. I enjoyed the selection at the commissary and BX. We've made several visits and have found new things to see each time.

Lackland AFB is best for training airmen. We went there for our son's BMT graduation. We are honored to be invited to Lackland AFB. Air Force transformed my son to be a good airman. It is very impressive. The AFB is large and its facilities are great. It was very cold and rained during his graduation. You may relax in... More
