Enter your BMT Memory or question for the greater community. I started my journey in the Air Force Aug 3,1987 at Squadron 3743 Flight 803. I remember we had a female DI/TI Tsgt Breedlove. I unfortunately got out on a medical in April 1993. Hard to believe it has been 25 years. I was a SRA E-4 when I got out. Last duty Station was Cannon AFB Clovis NM. I thouroughly enjoyed my time in the service. I know it has been a long time since BMTS but if there is anyone who views this and has a picture of our Squadron 3743 Flt 803 photo I would love to see it either email or up on this site. Thank you, God Bless our Military.

To whom this may concern:

 I don't have any photos from basic but have struggled for years to find them on the Internet and to connect with former Airmen. I graduated Lackland AFB the week of July 12 1979. I know graduation had to have happened around the 12th because I distinctly remember getting on a bus to Keesler AFB on Jul 13 of 1979. I don't remember the squadron number but it was 370...something and I remember our drill instructor called us Honor Flight 401. Maybe it was verbal only not sure. Don't remember his name either. However I do remember our sister flight's DI was Sgt. Johnson. Both DI's were white guys.

 The purpose of this email to connect with someone who may have knowledge of a digitized graduation photo of our flight. One of the Airmen in my flight his last name was Waters. Wish I could give you more to work with. I would give anything to have a copy of that photo.

 Hope to hear from someone

Anyone know what became of Sgt Jennifer Chinn? My sister-flight at the time was 323 TRS/Flt W116, and that photo is on here (May 1995), and Sgt Chinn is visible in that pic. In my life I have only ever been afraid of 3 woman: My mother, my wife, and Sgt Jennifer Chinn. I hope that she's doing well now. One of my other team members was then TSgt Sanchez (though I'm sure he made Master at some point). I ran into him again at my duty station in Minot, which gave me the chance to thank him and let him know that his training meant a lot to me. Good man. TSgt Brown, SrA Shockley, Msgt Delgado... I have fond memories of all of them, though I'm sure they all ranked up after I knew them.

We had two great TI's (SSgt Serrato and Sgt Miller). I remember SSgt Serrato showing us how to spit shine out boots. Looked like glass when he was done. Most of us could not get the same results, so we opted to used mop and glow. Worked like a charm, but you had to strip down the boots each week and reapply the floor wax. Also, remember Sgt Miller doing a surprise inspection. During the inspection he had the radio playing pretty loud so everyone could hear the music. I believe it was a jazz station, so most of us were not familiar with the music. He would offer to not give you a demerit if you could name the name the tune that was playing at the time. If I remember correctly no one could name the tune, so the demerits remained. In the end we made Honor Flight, so I can say they did an outstanding job.

Enlisted 08 Jun 72 and arrived at Lackland sometime after midnight 09 Jun 72. Was met by TSGT Johnson after about a 10 minute wait. We were just lounging around waiting and smoking. Heard those now memorable sounds of heel plates coming. Got our first rude awakening at that time. He moved us to the old WWII barracks and had us bed down. The second rude awakening is military time began every morning at 0500 hrs. No exceptions. We were rainbows for almost two weeks until we were given our basic issue. I was almost set back because of pneumonia. Had it not been for my being laid up over the 4th of July holiday weekend, was a 3 day weekend, I would have been.

Anyway folks I do not have my BMT photo. I was hoping maybe someone has a copy and would not mind sharing it via email. As I said TSGT Johnson was our TI and AIC Armstrong was his assistant TI. Thanks in advance if anyone can help me with this.

Drum & Bugle Corps was the best! All previous demerits from first flight erased. Barracks were old, but secluded and had windows. Had our own Day Room and got to watch the Super Bowl in comfort. We ended up as an Honor Flight, and never had to pull kitchen duty, or base clean up. I only remember a few names: Roy Disney, Teresa Milsap, Becky Fish, and Pat Grier. Good times! Would love to hear from other Flight members.

Enter your BMT Memory or question for the greater community.    I went into Basic Training in July 1972. Our Flt was 51. We wrote a song for our Flt, Flight 51 the Lackland Ladies. We were the first flight that did not automatically get our first stripe out of Basic. People were furious. If memory is correct, only 15% received a stripe upon graduating. We had skunks that lived under our steps that saved us from a number of surprise inspections. We had a male and a female TI, but I do not remember their names. Anyone from this flight, I would love to chat with you. I would love to see a Flight photo if one exists.

   TI was Nils S. Pascusi. 15 of us were Guardsmen. I was Dorm Chief.

 We were the TIs 25th Flight. He dubbed us Silver Flight and we painted a mural on the dorm wall depicting that.

 I remember lots of stories (Amn Gromio from Philippines was near 35 and turning grey.

 Someone in the other day pulled a shaving cream prank on him on night and he nearly killed them. (At least he scared them really good)).

 We ended as the Honor Flight. I went to Keesler AFB, and left as honor graduate.

 Cross trained to HVAc, then AGE, then back to Keesler on my 30th anniversary. I cross trained to Network Integration and again Honor Graduate. Retired as CMSgt at 60yo with 37+ years.

 We took a group photo at Lackland. I have never seen a copy nor a yearbook from 1965 or 66 that has my Flight.

 Looking for images of Squadron 3702, Flight 346 There was SS Parish, and SS Melier were Training Instructors at the time.

  I would like to hear from anyone that was in the flight, or stationed later at MacDill Air Force Base, Florida, where

 I spent the next 3.5 years as an aircraft weapons mechanic, later as a weapons load team chief on the F-4 aircraft.

  One of my t.i's banged on the entry door when I was the barracks guard, saying he had forgotten

 his keys to the barracks. I didn't let him in. I knew I would be in trouble if I let him in... I am pretty sure he was testing me...

  I know there were photos of our flight taken, but our flight marched so poorly, we didn't march in the graduation ceremony...

Looking for flight orders. Myself and a dozen other flight members were an illegal, secret experiment without our knowledge or permission in Basic Training. Nasopharyngeal Radium Irradiation (NRI).

I want to find out the names of the others and try to contact them to see if they suffered the same disabilities as I have. All of my personnel/medical records were cleaned so there is no record. When I left the Air Force my medical folder was 3-4 inches thick from my many visits to sick call about the things that were happening to me.

My hopes is to get those who haven’t been compensated for this to be. I was awarded a 100% Disable T&P.

 Had an ex-Marine in my flight. Badass, nicest guy whom I credit with changing the course of my career. I was going for PJ service until he told me about the work in Vietnam. For the life of me can't remember his name. He was all shot up from two tours in Vietnam. I will never forget the first time the TI got in his face. My friend had some choice words for him and the TIs never messed with him again. He had a lasting effect on me.

 Names I remember: Atkinson - Dorm chief        TSgt Dudley - TI from Montgomery, AL [And he never let anyone forget it.]

 The overused phrase of the time: "I'll knock your XXXX string up your XXX."

 I lost 341s for laughing.

 Chuka boots were the absolute worst!

 Best memory: Too many to list, but base liberty was memorable. I lost her name and contact info, but we were behind a BX dumpster.

331 Honor Flight 098 

January 31, 1994

This is our 25th anniversary graduating from basic military training at Lackland AFB.

Some of the guys were interested in finding others from our Honor Flight 098 331 BMTS graduating class January 31, 1994.

We are hazy with many of the full names of our fellow airmen.

Is there an Air Force BMTS yearbook or roster list of our entire group available?

We would greatly appreciate your assistance with our efforts for a fun reunion gathering in the upcoming weeks.

 Sincerely yours,

I could not believe the dorms that the guys have now in the Air Force. In Charleston they have a nice bed bathroom refrig and stove etc. All we had was a lousy mattress a small sink no bathroom except in hall or shower. They have it made now, wish I could do it over again like now. They redid the dorms from the 60s to like now, doors face outside. They have nothing to complain about. If anyone was stationed at Charleston AFB from jan 1966 to Sept 1967 please contact me I was a 70250 in the C-141 and 124 flight simulators. Thanks

Flight Training Completed 1947
I am looking for any information on my Grandad, Herbert Anderson Jones. I believe he completed his training at Lackland in 1947 based on the Army Air Forces logo I see in an old postcard from him. In the postcard he and 3 other men are standing around a T-6. He writes that he's standing with McNleollough sp? "a boy from NC," the flight instructor, and then McHens sp? "a boy from olk" which I am guessing means Oklahoma. If anyone remembers him, he's from Florida, or think they recognize the other two possible names please let me know. Any info is appreciated! carolinecjones92@gmail.com

Searching for photo
I am in search of my father's individual AF photo. I have never seen it, and he does not know what happened to it. My oldest son is named after him, and is currently at BMT at Lackland. I was hoping to make something special for the both of them. My father's name is Roger Sandy. He graduated BMT in October 1970, and was in 3711 Squadron Flight 1016. I was able to locate the squadron photo. Did they have a yearbook then with individual photos? Could anyone point me in the right direction? I would greatly appreciate any help!

Note: Yes, there were flight books and individual photographs taken in 1970, however, both may be hard to get hold of these days. We also had the "Home Town News Release" in 1970... you might try the newspaper from the town your father came into the Air Force from -- check the paper from the month (October 1970) and look through the "Announcements" section to see if an announcement was made over his graduation from BMT -- most newspapers also included the photos!
