Military City USA®

San Antonio has been home to a consistent military presence for nearly 300 years. It’s why we’re called Military City USA®. Today the city has one of the nation's largest active and retired military populations. We’re also home to the Department of Defense’s largest medical center at Joint Base San Antonio Fort Sam Houston. We’re proud to welcome the families of the 39,000 students who graduate from military training here each year, because for us, training, equipping and caring for America’s service members is a way of life.

 

Experience the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds and the F-35 Heritage demonstration flight team in action during the annual Joint Base San Antonio Air Show & Open House. This free, two-day event features civilian flying acts, kids activities, food and more!
