New Basic Military Training Includes Streamlined Naturalization Process

New Basic Military Training Includes Streamlined Naturalization Process - Karina Gafford - JBSA Military Life - Your San Antonio Community - Real Estate - Texas

Since 2017, the basic military training regimen didn’t allow trainees to naturalize and become U.S. citizens before graduation. Now, the United States Air Force has re-implemented the program to enable trainees at JBSA-Lackland to become U.S. citizens prior to graduation from basic military training.

Military Life at Lackland Air Force Base

Lackland Air Force Base, known as the “gateway” for many careers in the Air Force, is located in southwest San Antonio, about 20 minutes from Downtown San Antonio. JBSA Lackland is named after Brigadier General Frank Lackland, who served in the District of Columbia National Guard and was later commissioned into the Army.
