I couldn't wait to see Lackland AFB again after all the years gone by. It was not the base I remembered. All new buildings and many enhancements had been made. There are museums to visit and memorials to see. Having been a K-9 handler I was most interested in the War Dog Memorial just off the parade field and the... More

The Airmen's Run, Coin Ceremony & Parade were all Amazing. Well executed but more seating for the Parade would've been nice. Most of the staff at the "Malls" are friendly & helpful. The food is...OK, I would recommend eating off base or packing a lunch. Grounds are clean

Lackland AFB is a very clean base. We were there for our Daughter's Graduation from Basic Military Training. We had an excellent time of course. We were very excited to see our new Airman and the transformation from civilian teenager to adult warrior. If you ever get to Lackland, you must eat at the Gateway. For one, it is gorgeous... More

My son was stationed here. My husband and I are retired military so we were on and off this base a lot. It really is huge with lots to do. There's a gold course, restaurants, shopping and a super camp ground for RVrs. If you pulled this as your duty Station don't be disappointed. You're surrounded by a city with... More

What a magnificent Military Base. It is not only immaculate; but also so very patriotic and friendly. The parade just before and during the graduation ceremonies is so very awesome. You know, it just makes you glad to be part of the USA & all the more proud when one of your relatives is part of the AIR FORCE!!

We were here for our son's BMT graduation. Everyone was very nice and helpful! There are many places to eat on base and a lot of park areas to sit and talk. Very nice!
