We traveled to Texas for a military retirement ceremony and were able to stay on base. Rooms were ok, large and clean but in need of repair. Price was good and we were able to gain access through the front gate with a family pass.

I travel here quite often for work and always enjoy getting to see the parade grounds and Wilford Hall. A lot of history here at the "Gateway to the Air Force" for our young Airmen.

I arrived here to watch my son graduate BMT. We toured the museums and viewed the aircraft. The areas we went to was easily to get around and the Gate way club has good food.

Base has everything to be entertained, fed, and proud. Not sure if I ever felt more safe before. Graduation Parade is a great event every American should visit. Great for young children to feel involved in their older siblings success.

Our family traveled to TX for my son's BMT graduation. I was disappointed in the lack of information provided for parking and event locales. We often felt as if we were driving around in circles looking for our destination. One of my son's graduated from...More

The base is confusing. Wish more options for visiting friends. Nice set up for Boot Camp Graduation. Nice base.

We spent the Christmas holiday near Lackland due to my son graduating from JBSA Lackland. We had a great time walking around base and going in the exchange.

The best thing to do is call the base directory. The operator will direct your call. Most bases have areas to "store" these items but I don't think they offer any stations for hooking up electricity or water. If you're a... More
