We visited Lackland Air Force Base for our daughters BMT graduation and were surprised at how nice the base was. It was very clean and some of the buildings were very nice. Great place to visit.

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.
