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!

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.
