  • Gateway to America -- U.S. Air Force English Language Beta Test Advances Despite COVID-19

    In March 2020, the 37th Training Wing began a beta test for an Air Force version of the Defense Language Institute English Language Center (DLIELC) Army Echo Company program which has been in existence since 1975. In partnership with Air Force Recruiting Service, this beta test is now in the execution phase. The goal is to show that an English language barrier is not a roadblock for eligible recruits interested in joining the United States Air Force. This is all credited to the unique language training capability DLIELC will provide them prior to the start of Basic Military Training (BMT) at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas.

    Welcome to the Air Force family! We are excited for you and your next chapter of your Air Force journey. Under normal circumstances, the key spouses from the 737th Training Group (TRG) hold a weekly briefing before the Coin Ceremony (also known as Retreat).

Our goal at each week’s briefing is to make sure new spouses feel welcomed, appreciated and connected. We hope the information below is helpful to you! 
  • BMT adapts during COVID-19: adds masks, shortens pipeline

    To prioritize safety and continue providing ready Airmen to fuel tomorrow’s Air Force, BMT is moving to a 7.5-week training pipeline. There’s no doubt the COVID-19 pandemic has presented unique challenges that require adaptability. The 7.5-week training program is one of many measures implemented at BMT to limit the spread of COVID-19. BMT leadership team is also working to procure face masks that we can provide to our staff and trainees. In the meantime, we are using CDC guidelines for staff and trainees to fashion their own cloth face covering. 
  • An Open Letter to the Warhawk Family

    Our Gateway Wing has the high honor of being deemed Mission Essential.  We are the largest training wing in the Air Force, responsible for building Airmen and strengthening the partnerships we need to compete, deter, and win.  We are home to the Air Force’s only enlisted Basic Military Training (737 TRG), the largest & most diverse Technical Training Group (37 TRG), two significant international/security cooperation missions (IAAFA & DLI), and the DoD Executive Agent for Military Working Dogs & English Language Training.  We are the Gateway to the Air Force, and in many respects, the Gateway to the Americas.  Our wing remains absolutely vital to renew the force and underwrites our ability to defend the nation and deliver air and space power anytime, anyplace.
