Your BMT Memories
Basic Training
I was in the 3725th BTMS Flight 191 January 1961. Trying to locate former friends. The entire flight was from the New England area.

BMTS 3706 Flt 1652 I don't remember group photo but will watch the site for one. I entered the USAF Nov. 23, 1963 the day Pres.Kennedy was assassinated. We sat in the barracks a week before going to the Green Monster to get issue of clothes.I was from San Antonio and played golf on the course many times as my father retired from Lackland 1961. No one was the change into civies, drive a car or leave the city limits. Thanksgiving day my father picked me up and I drove back in civies, picked up 3 others and drove to New Braunsfelds for the day.Drove back, changed and father brought us back to base without anyone knowing. We were issued a can on neutral polish from PX. We used it to polish the upstairs floor. We moved everything, about 12 of us polished and 12 came along after and used blankets to polish. No one walked down the center of the aisle. The TI came in, saw what we were doing, looked at us and walked into his office and shut the door. Didn't come out til finished and said "Looks good" and left. Neat guy. memories

My memories
I arrived at Lackland from Puerto Rico late on a cold early winter night on October 1983. I was wearing slacks and a short sleeve shirt and was standing outside the Orderly Room for almost 2 hours waiting for our TI TSgt Ramon Morin to come and take us to the dorm. From that single moment my life changed forever and I thank God for giving the courage to go through it.

My time at USAF Basic Training
I reported to USAF Basic Training on 5 Aug 1971 from Boston MA. After basic I reported directly to my first duty station at the US Air Force Human Resources Lab AFHRL on Lakeland AFB as a statistical computer programmer after some leave. Later I was reassigned to the 7102 Computer Services Squadron in Germany and later the 7012 Computer Services Flight as an Intelligence Person as the Independent Site Security Officer and as the Systems Programmer for the Intelligence Data Handling Systems IDHS Europe. I left the USAF to become a civil servant for the 7012. Now my youngest son is at Lackland going through BMT.
