My son graduated from basic training this year. We got to explore the base a little more this year. Last year, my nephew graduated but we didn't do much on base.

Very nice campus. Airmen very respectful. Grounds are well kept. Not many healthy choices when it came to food and was very surprised because I was under the impression that staying healthy was the goal? Enjoyed stay.
