My son just graduated from BMT! I am new to the military world but was amazed at everything offered on the base; shopping, restaurants(BK; Arby's; Pizza; Chinese, etc); Movie theater and bowling! Not to mention the awesome Air Force museums and varied airplanes to view!

We were here for my son's Air Force BMT graduation. Being on base conjured up a lot of memories from my service time back in the late 70's. The way of life on a military base has not changed much since then and that's a...More

Just spent the weekend watching our son in law graduate from BMT. Incredible to see all of the men and women who have chosen to serve our country, parade and take the military oath. Everyone should experience this at least once.

You can be proud of the young folks you see around a military base. They are paying their, and our dues , to live in freedom. Nice Exchange and commissary facilities. Nicely kept base adjacent to the old Kelly AFB.
