From the moment you arrive, you will begin the process of becoming an Airman in the world’s greatest Air Force. The training will be intense and you may find it the most demanding 8 weeks of your life, as well as the most rewarding. Preparing physically in advance and coming with an open mind will play a big part in your success.

As far as climate goes, Lackland Air Force Base is located in San Antonio, Texas, which may be a drastic change for those not familiar with heat and humidity. However, basic training is designed to help you acclimate. During the last week of training, graduation week, you and your family will have an opportunity to experience the exciting attractions San Antonio has to offer.

Also on our main AFWM Facebook wall on the left is a link called, “Share”. We’d encourage you to suggest the page to all your family and friends and even the friends of your Trainee. The more people we have pulling together supporting and encouraging each other the better. Especially for those unable to attend graduation. The page is an awesome way to stay connected.
Here’s the link to the AF youtube channel called AF BlueTube.
