We were at Lackland for our airman's BMT graduation. The grounds are nice, and the base easy to navigate once you get your bearings.

Great place to visit. Everyone was very polite. Very well organized. Airmen were easy to reach. Every family with someone graduating should experience this.

Great base. Good BX and food court. Stay away from the small BX's on training side of base for shopping. They are filled with recruits and long lines.
