Great base. Good BX and food court. Stay away from the small BX's on training side of base for shopping. They are filled with recruits and long lines.

Our family visited Lackland to watch my husband graduate BMT and Lackland has to be the most polite Air Force base I have ever been on. Everyone was so pleasant and helpful!
