Major Construction to Begin at Lackland

Air Force officials say the nearly $900 million worth of construction slated to start this fall at Lackland AFB, Tex., will be the largest Milcon effort in the service. The work includes eight airmen training complexes and four dining-classroom facilities destined for two campuses that will replace recruit housing and training buildings scattered across the service’s basic training facility. Officials plan to phase in the project over nine years. (Lackland report by Mike Joseph)
