HISTORY OF LACKLAND
The land that eventually became Lackland Air Force Base used to be part of Kelly Field. The pilots at Kelly used the area as
a bombing range and called it 'the hill' because the flat escarpment rose steeply above their airfield.
Brigadier General Frank D. Lackland became commander of the Air Corps Advanced Flying School at Kelly Field. He began
his military career in 1911 as an infantry Lieutenant and served with George C. Marshall fthen also a lieutenantj in the
Philippines before World War l. He received his wings in 1917. This made Lackland one of the Army's early band of pilots. As a
colonel, he became commander of Brooks Field in 1934 before taking command at Kelly in March 1938. While at Kelly, he
conceived the idea of a major training facility on the hill overlooking the field. General Lackland died on 27 April 1943 and is
buried in the Arlington National Cemetery.
The growth of Kelly's hill to the nation's largest military center resulted from the foresight of General Lackland. On 10
October 1940, three officers were appointed to determine the requirements for establishing an aviation cadet reception center
for the Gulf Coast area. The War Department approved a facility for 1,300 cadets. A letter from the Adjutant General dated 21
February 1941 authorized 62 buildings, including 42 barracks capable of housing 31 men each, five mess halls, five
administration buildings, a fire station, an infirmary, a post exchange, a recreation building, warehouse, and five school
buildings. ln May 1941 the planned training capacity was increased to 2,088 cadets.
On 30 September 1941, the new development on the hill was designated the Air Corps Replacement Training Center fAir
Crewj, Kelly Field, Texas. The first class of cadets reported for training at San Antonio on 12 November 1941, less than a
month before Pearl Harbor.
On 1 February 1946 the post was transferred to AAF Technical Training Command and redesignated the AAF Military
Training Center. lt absorbed the Basic Training School from Harlingen Field, Texas and began basic training for enlisted
personnel on 4 February. The training course was six weeks in length Q30 training daysj.
On 18 September 1947 the United States Air Force QUSAFJ was born as a separate service. The lndroctrination Training
Center QIDTRCJ finally received a formal name when it became Lackland Air Force Base QAFBJ on 1 July 1947. Ceremonies
that marked the naming of the base were held on 12 July.
Lackland AFB grew slowly during the next few years, but saw some important changes. ln October 1948 it began basic
training for the newly authorized Women in the Air Force QWAFJ. ln June 1949 Lackland began the integration of black airmen
into regular units with whites. On 29 July 1950 the base population had grown to 28,803, with 3,500 male trainees already
living in tents.
Lackland began taking on a 'new look' during 1962. ln November the first of what was to become many new self contained
dormitories for basic training were completed. Each of these three large buildings provided air conditioned living quarters,
classrooms and covered drill areas for 200 trainees.
The distinctive 'Smokey Bear' hat became part of the Military Training lnstructor's uniform, on 31 August 1967, making
them look about two feet taller to many newly arrived trainees.
The Lackland Military Training Center was renamed the Air Force Military Training Center on 1 January 1973, in
recognition of the fact that it is the Air Force's only basic training center. lt is also referred to as 'The Gateway To The Air
Force'. This is the place where thousands of dedicated young men and women make the transition from civilian life to the
United States Air Force.
Today Lackland Air Force Base is a busy community spread over almost 7,000 acres in the southwest part of San Antonio,
Texas. With more than 1000 buildings, the base resembles a small city. lt has a great medical center, a modern shopping
complex, theaters, restaurants, bowling alleys, swimming pools, gas stations and shady residential areas. The main purpose of
Lackland, however, is still training. Dormitories, classrooms, and athletic fields cover much of the base.
The daily population of Lackland now averages over 33,000 people, both military and civilian. This makes Lackland the 31st
largest city in Texas. About half of this population is going to school. The great majority of students are at the Air Force
Military Training Center to take basic military training. This demanding six-week course gives the men and women who enlist
in the Air Force a speedy transition from civilian to military life. For them basic training is how they prove to themselves and to
the Air Force that they are motivated and capable of joining the aerospace team.
Many of the other students at Lackland are taking more advanced technical training in subjects ranging from law
enforcement to electronics. Some of these students represent the Army, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard, and various civilian
government agencies. Lackland has also become an international educational community. Military personnel from over 30
nations come to learn English at the Defense Language Institute before going on to study a wide variety of military skills.

The confidence course helps to develop
team work, build spirit and instill a high sense
of self-confidence. Negotiating obstacles of
great height or requiring considerable physi-
cal strength are challenging. Though demand-
ing both physically and mentally the confi-
dence course is a great team and spirit
builder. This test of physical endurance is
made easier because of the encouragement
given by the instructor when you need it
most. Team work helps to build units that
operate together with a sense of spirit and
pride in their accomplishments.

They are the cautioning voice, the helpful hand, the watchful
eye that guides the new airmen through six weeks of strenuous
Air Force Basic Military Training.
They have gained their knowledge through practical experi-
ence. lt is properly their job to guide, instruct, and encourage the
young people who are training to become airmen.
They are seasoned graduates of the Military Training Instructor
School - a course which reviews all the "Basics" of Basic
Training in a curriculum much more strenuous than Basic Train-
ing, They wear the distinctive mark of a graduate of that school
- the Campaign Hat.
More than 1500 Basic Airmen enter and leave the Air Force
Military Training Center each week, but the Training Instructors
remain to fulfill their mission of developing well trained airmen.
