Lackland Air Force Base (IATA: SKF, ICAO: KSKF, FAA LID: SKF) is a United States Air Force base located in Bexar County, Texas. The base is under the jurisdiction of the 802d Mission Support Group, Air Education and Training Command (AETC), and an enclave of the city of San Antonio. It is the only site for Air Force enlisted Basic Military Training (BMT).
For many years they've come through the gates of Lackland. Most enlisted personnel remember it as Lackland Air Force Base. Recent entries know it as Joint Base Lackland. But for all enlisted airmen, it's the place they started their Air Force career.
Nicknamed The Gateway to the Air Force, the base has long been the only entry point for enlisted personnel. Hundreds of thousands of proud men and women have joined the Air Force team here. They've sweated together, studied together, learned how to march together and helped one another get through one of the toughest times of their young lives.
After they were done they earned the right to call themselves "airmen" and became members of the most powerful Air Force in the world.
