Lackland BMT Graduations


Congrats to our latest Lackland Basic Military Training (BMT) graduates! In order to ensure you have a great experience, not only at a Lackland Hotel but also at the graduation ceremonies, here are some tips!

  • Call or book at any of our hotels prior to arrival. The Lackland Hotel locations are a great choice because, the closer you are to the base, the less hassle you will have with your trip.
  • Arrive well ahead of scheduled time to ensure you are admitted into the base in a timely manner. Security checks at the gate are of utmost importance and can not be rushed.
  • Talking on cell phones while driving on base is not permitted.
  • Be courteous to other visitors and Airmen as they perform their scheduled operations
  • There are training weapons on base. While incapable of firing, they are still treated as real weapons for learning purposes.
  • Background checks are carried out for all family and friends that are visiting the base. All recruits must complete the Visitor Access Request Letter prior to graduation to avoid potential delays
  • Visitors under the age of 18 may enter the base only when escorted by an adult who has granted access
