At the base everyone was so nice, friendly and helpful. The graduation is something I will never forget. Thank you for letting the families be part of it. May God Bless every Airman that walks through those gates.

Our visit was for our Grandsons' graduation from Air Force Basic Training and all the demonstrations were outstanding as were the personnel. Lots of old planes to see and explore.

We spent several days on base and enjoyed exploring the planes on display, and shopping. BMT graduation was well executed - the Airman's Run and Coin Ceremony were beautiful!
