Brooks City Base
Brooks City Base, formerly Brooks Air Force Base, and before that variously Gosport Field and Kelly Field #5, is located slightly to the south-east of downtown San Antonio. At the dawn of American military aviation, Brooks and Kelly were comfortably far out enough in the country that aviators of fixed wing and lighter-than-air flying machines could train without endangering any but themselves. Brooks Field was officially established in 1918 as a training base for the Air Service of the US Army Signal Corps. For some years, Brooks Field was the Army Air Corps primary flight training school, until that mission relocated to Randolph AFB. After that, Brooks became the new home for the Aerial…

Established in 1917, Camp Bullis was originally used as one of many training sites for the American Expeditionary Force soon to be sent to Europe. Used as a small arms and rifle range for Fort Sam Houston, no units were stationed at the Camp. After World War I, the Camp served as a training site for various civilian and military organizations, including the Civilian Military Training Corps, the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) and the Officer Reserve Corps. During World War II, the 2nd, 95th, and 88th Infantry Divisions used Camp Bullis. After the war, 500,000 soldiers were processed out through the separation center at the Camp. In 1977, the Air Force…

The Alamo in downtown San Antonio
Deep within the heart of downtown San Antonio lays an infamous part of Texas state history. More than 2.5 million individuals a year visit “The Alamo” on a yearly basis. This 4.2 acre historic piece of land is essentially the resting place of the 300 year old mission where a small fraction of native Texans found themselves holed up for a full 13 days against the Mexican army, headed by General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna in 1836.
Many remember the stories of James Bowie, William B. Travis, and David Crockett who fought gallantly despite what would be obviously grim outcomes. Yes, although the defenders of the Alamo lost the battle and inevitably their lives, The…

Today's Lackland Aif Force Base
Lackland Air Force Base, popularly known as the “Gateway to the Air Force,” is located at the edge of San Antonio’s south-west suburbs, and is unique for several reasons. It is a training base, and has been ever since construction began on a permanent facility to train aviation cadets in 1941. If you have served in the US Air Force at any time since the Korean War, the odds are very high that you have come to Lackland, since it was designated the main training base for officer and enlisted Army Air Force recruits in 1946, and continued in that capacity for the Air Force – although wartime demands during Korea and Vietnam sent overflow training missions temporarily to other…

Fort Sam Houston
Fort Sam Houston is considered to be the home of Army medicine, since all Army medical training was consolidated there at the end of World War Two. The Base Realignment and Closure Commission of 2005 recommended that all military medical training be consolidated at Fort Sam Houston – popularly known as “Fort Sam.” Both Navy and Air Force medical training programs are scheduled to move from their present locations in the near future. But Fort Sam was not always the home of military medicine – for at least fiftyyears, it was the main supply depot and headquarters for the US Army on the southwestern frontier . . . and in 1910 it was the birthplace of military aviation, when then-Lieutenant…
