I come to Lackland AFB frequently for work and have been here many, many times. Always neat to see the the new recruits and their families on Thursdays and Fridays during graduation. I tip my hat to all that serve. The US Military is First Class! Thank-you to all that have served, are serving and who are going to serve.... More

This is a great American air force base! I've had many friends rotate through this base with only good things to say!

Great to be able to see the Air Force Base in action. Full of bustle and life, it was a great experience. I see they are adding new buildings. Seems they need to keep at this as some are still quite old, and with the amount of families they draw in every weekend they need more building space to house... More

We were here for our grand-daughter graduation from boot camp. If you are going to the graduation, take a lot of water as there is no shade and people were passing out left and right.

We were recently here for our son's BMT graduation. I poured through this site before our trip looking for tips and thought I'd share some of our own now that we've been there. We stayed off base at the Best Western Atrea. It was a nice place, included a free breakfast buffet every morning, had a mini fridge in the... More

Wonderful run base. The ceremonies all start on time, it's very organized, they are very nicely run but quick at the same time so not to make anyone have to be in the heat any longer than necessary. Lots of shade available too for all the family members.

Lackland AFB is a great place to do drive-thru sightseeing! See young recruits marching, training and graduating. Like airplanes? This is the place to go and be in the comfort of your car. The grounds are beautiful with airplanes sprinkled all over the base. Our favorite is the "Blackbird", SR-71. Our families are always excited to watch takeoffs and landings... More

I was stationed there in the 80's, as a drill instructor, the place has changed so much, but was great to see again, it was a weekend so we missed a graduation parade, but went to medina anex, to see my old office bld 125 when I was assigned to OTS

We were here this past weekend for our sons BMT Graduation. Being there brought back memories of when I served in the military many years ago. If your son or daughter decides to join the USAF I would highly recommend attending the graduation. Get there early so you can get a good seat.
