The Setting - San Antonio, TX
San Antonio may have an incredibly rich history, but it's also a destination rife with exciting new developments and attractions. One major new draw is the redevelopment of the legendary Pearl Brewery into a hip and artsy Urban Village along a newly completed extension of the enchanting River Walk - this bustling, eco-friendly complex includes shops, restaurants, entertainment and residences. Farther north along the river, the very first public golf venue in Texas, Brackenridge Golf Course, completed a stunning $4.6 million refurbishment in 2009, and in arts news, the prestigious McNay Art Museum nearly doubled in size with the opening of a dramatic new wing done in modernist style. With swank, see-and-be-seen restaurants, shops, and nightspots opening around the city, San Antonio has plenty to offer both new and repeat visitors.

Lackland Air Force Base
The Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas provides basic military training for Air Force recruits. Lackland Air Force Base also lays claim to the Inter-American Air Forces Academy, the Defense Language Institute English Language Center and Wilford Hall Medical Center, the Air Force's largest medical facility. Originally known as the San Antonio Aviation Cadet Center, Lackland Air Force Base was created from a section of Kelly Field in 1942. Construction on Lackland Air Force Base began in 1941, and it was originally part of Kelly Field. One year later, it became an independent organization--the San Antonio Aviation Cadet Center. In 1948, the facility was named Lackland AFB after Brigadier General Frank Lackland.
