Weapons Evaluation

Air Force Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program Promote a safe, respectful, and productive work environment free from sexual innuendo, harassment, and assault is the responsibility of every Airman. The Air Force's mission depends on Airmen having complete trust and confidence in one another. Air Force core values of Integrity First, Service Before Self and Excellence In All We Do, define the standard. Sexual assault is absolutely inconsistent and incompatible with our core values, our mission, and our heritage. As such, the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response program is a priority both for ensuring readiness and taking care of our Airmen.


Anything worth doing is, is worth doing well. It takes times to get the photos shipped out to you, but the time is so well worth the wait. 

  • Photos are taken by BVP between arrival WOT 0 and WOT 6. Official Airmen "Blues" photo are taken during WOT 4 between Mon & Sat. The photos taken between WOT 0 - WOT 6, along with their Official Blues photos are available for purchase by the Airmen. You'll want to contact BVP about WOT 5 to verify that your AB has placed the order. If not, you can order while at graduation, however, you will have to pay for shipping.  You will have an opportunity to also purchase the video of "Events" while at graduation. The "Events" include the Coin Ceremony, The Graduation Parade and 'shout outs' taken on Thurs while waiting for 'Events'.  It will take at least 30-60 days to be processed, shipped & delivered.

Family Portraits can be taken on Friday following graduation between 11 - 12:30. More information to be announced at the briefings.

Contact info for BVP - 210-272-0293 Mon-Wed central. If you forget to order something, don't worry. You can order up to 5 years after graduation.

  • Basic Training Store:

Since we know you can't wait that long, if you contact BVP ( 210.272.0293) or BMT store ( on line you can order buttons of your AB in their blues. You will not get a preview, but it is exciting to have! What's great is that you can order your buttons as early as WOT 1. You'll need to provide AB Last, First MI and TRS/FLT.

There are ideas for writing to other trainees on our Writing Ideas page.
Don't forget you can send Word Search WOT4 and Questionnaires

Each trainee will fill out a Hometown News release, that information will be put in a data base that Newspapers and radio stations who subscribe can get the information and publish it. The site isn't open to public. Some papers do it and some don't. Here is an example I found of what they look like:
