Receiving packages or mail from friends and family when at basic training is something you want to do as you will be cut off from the world for a few months and regular old "snail mail" is your gateway to what is going on in your world. However, the only way to get mail is to write letters yourself to your friends and family typically. Here is how the mailing system works at Air Force Basic Military Training Squadrons:

A day or two after arrival at Air Force Basic Military Training (AFBMT), you will learn your mailing address. On the Sunday or Monday following arrival, you should get a chance to call home, and let your loved ones know your new address. You will also fill out a postcard to mail to your loved ones, as soon as you get your address. Your parents may also be able to find you on social media as there is a Facebook Page for Recruit Training.

Recruit Training Squadron Addresses

At Basic Military Training, there are seven Recruit Training Squadrons (TRS) at Lackland. Your mailing address depends on your squadron, the flight you are assigned to, and the dormitory number your flight is assigned to. Your mailing address will look like this:

For all of the squadrons, except for the 319th and 324th, the unit # begins with "36," and the last 4 digits depend on the squadron assigned to and the dormitory assigned.

Don't get too wrapped up over the addresses, even if one of the examples look a little different than what you heard over the phone. Even if pieces of the address are wrong or missing, your letter will still get there. As long as you have the name, squadron, flight, Lackland AFB, and the first five numbers of the zip code on the envelope, the letter will get to the recruit (it just may take a day or two longer).

For example, the following address would get to a recruit who was in the 326th Training Squadron in Flight 672:

AB Appleseed, Johnny
326 TRS / FLT 672
Lackland AFB, TX 78236

If all else fails, a week (or so) after arrival, your address is listed at the Lackland AFB Basic Training Reception Center. Your family can call the center at (210) 671-3024 and get your address.
