Thousands turn out for JBSA-Fort Sam Houston Oktoberfest

By Steve Elliott 502nd Air Base Wing Public Affairs

Taking advantage of a beautiful Texas autumn afternoon, thousands of people took part in the annual Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston Oktoberfest celebration, enjoying live music, arts and crafts, children's activities, food and a few adult beverages Oct. 19.

The U.S. Air Force Band of the West's Warhawk band got the music going early with a wide variety of rock and dance tunes and the Beethoven Dance Band took it from there with authentic German music, complete with a full brass section. In between the two musical acts, Maj. Gen. David P. Glaser, Deputy Commanding General-Operations, U.S. Army North (Fifth Army), helped tap the ceremonial keg.
