Porter High School Air Force Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps from Porter, Texas ended a two-day tour of Joint Base San Antonio by spending their last day of the tour hosted by the 433rd Airlift Wing. During the first leg of the trip, the group attended a basic military training graduation on the parade grounds of JBSA-Lackland, to watch the Airmen "Pass in Review" and reaffirm their "Oath of Enlistment." "They talked about the precision, attention to details and teamwork of each flight. One of my freshman cadets told me after the graduation that she wanted to be out on that field in four years,” said Maj. Wes Sagendorph, Senior Aerospace Science Instructor, Porter High School, Porter, Texas.   


The second stop of the tour was a visit to the U.S. Air Force Airman Heritage Museum. There they were greeted by Command Curator Rudy Purificato who walked the group back in time with a pictorial presentation of basic military training and technical training from the early days of U.S. Air Force history, up to the present. The next stop was a visit to the 433rd AW, where the group received a tour of a C-5M Super Galaxy, the Air Force's largest airlifter aircraft.

“First and foremost we appreciated the professionalism and the attention that the 433rd Airlift Wing provided during this tour. The aircrew that gave the tour was great and very knowledgeable, they were able to answer all the questions asked,” said Sagendorph. “I would rate this tour as the best we have done in the three years we have been coming to Lackland Air Force Base.”
