Wonderful experience! Everything was organized and easy to find. The base is huge so if you are traveling from out of town, i highly recommend renting a vehicle. The grounds are well maintained, everyone was friendly and helpful.

I am so proud to be invited to a graduation of such great stature. My son in law was allowed to join the United States Air Force. His graduation was well planned with enough pomp and circumstance to bring a tear to everyones eye.

They welcome visitors and the Burger King on base is really nice. The BX has a large selection of clothes, toys and good places to eat.

The ceremonies for trainee graduation is very well done. I love a good parade and it is a good parade. It was very emotional and patriotic. I got lost too much on base. If I went back I would see if they had better maps at the Visitor's Center.

It's a little challenging to find, but for a small museum, the Airmen's Museum is quite comprehensive, well done, and excellent explanatory labels. The static aircraft display of historic aircraft (on the parade field) is a must see! Also the military dog memorial at one end. It's a hike around the field, but take it all in! From C-47, the...

Very large, beautiful base! Went for BMT graduation. Security was friendly, professional and informative. Grounds were very well kept and during events, they had detail on every corner making sure people could cross streets safely. Ate at the BX complex, Smokey Joes BBQ and sat at the bowling alley. (fun, bright and upbeat music).

I am a proud grandmother of a recently graduated BMT trainee. The temperature was sizzling and the walking distances were long, especially for those with a handicap, but I can't give this review anything less than a 5 star rating. I am so very proud of the discipline and courtesy of all people involved in organizing these graduations. Watching my... More
