The most common mistake new arrivals make is renting a house close to one base and being assigned to another, resulting in unnecessary travel every day.

The M&FRC at Lackland AFB has several services to assist airmen and their family members with acclimating to the base and community. One of the more challenging aspects of this assignment is the large size of the base and moving to the seventh-largest city in the United States. The staff is available to assist with all aspects of settling in, whether it is merely an explanation of the layout of the city and the installation, choosing which areas to live, or where to start looking for employment If you did not receive a welcome package, we will prepare one for you when you stop by our building.
Lackland AFB is commonly known as the "Gateway to the Air Force" because all enlisted members, whether active duty, Guard, or Reserve, begin their careers here at basic military training. Because of this unique mission, the base receives thousands of requests from individuals and small groups for tours each year. Lackland is no longer an open installation, so all guests must be sponsored by someone with a valid military identification card. The Lackland Public Affairs Office can occasionally sponsor groups on the base. Contact the office at 210-671-2907. For further information, visit the Lackland AFB homepage.
English for Speakers of Other Languages is not offered on the installation, but there are numerous resources in the community. Contact us at 210-671-3722 for a list of the possibilities.
