This site contains the most current and accurate information available concerning United States Air Force Basic Military Training (BMT) at Lackland Air Force Base. Every year the Base trains and graduates thousands of professional Airmen, ready and willing to take on the rigorous duties required of military life to keep our country free. We celebrate their sacrifice to protect our freedom, and we celebrate their spirit to pursue life in the military forces. We also recognize that their families, friends, and loved ones feel deeply about the sacrifice that each and every Airman makes when he or she raises her hand to pledge their lives to the defense of the United States. Many of them will distinguish themselves in their military careers, many of them will become inspirations to younger generations, but all of them are exceptional individuals who merit our respect and our gratitude.
For those of you searching for information about BMT, Lackland, San Antonio, and the military in general, you'll find a vast array of information on this site. Lackland is the only training facility for the United States Air Force, and so holds a place of honor in that distinguished military service. Many alumni of the Air Force return again and again to visit the place that they considered home, if even for a short while. This site is dedicated to them...and for you; to provide up to date, complete, and detailed information about all aspects of BMT. If you can't find it here, you won't find it elsewhere (but if you do, please let us know what it is we're missing)..
