Feedback Fridays

By Brig. Gen. Caroline M. Miller 502d Air Base Wing Commander

Feedback Fridays is a weekly forum that aims to connect the 502d Air Base Wing with members of the Joint Base San Antonio community. Questions are collected during commander’s calls, town hall meetings and throughout the week.

If you have a question or concern, please send an email to using the subject line “Feedback Fridays.” Questions will be further researched and published as information becomes available.

Q. Are there any plans on clearing out the overgrowth in the fishing ponds at the back of the JBSA-Randolph golf course?

At this point, all of them are completely unfishable. Thank you for your attention.

A. Thank you for your feedback.  We are happy to hear that you like to utilize outdoor recreation activities at JBSA-Randolph.  

While it is possible to fish in the Randolph golf course chain of lakes, they were not established for and are not maintained for fishing. They are designed as storm drainage holding ponds to control runoff before draining off base. 

At this time we have no plans to clean out the lilies specifically for fishing.  There are other fishing opportunities in the local area, such as Leon Creek at JBSA-Lackland, Medio Creek at JBSA-Chapman Annex, and Salado Creek at JBSA-Fort Sam Houston. 

There are also outstanding fishing possibilities at Canyon Lake using the JBSA recreational area. For more information visit:

Q. I live on JBSA-Fort Sam Houston, specifically in Harris Heights. Weekly, we have community members complaining about the regular speeding on Hardee Road as well as through our neighborhoods.

I'd like to see something done about this besides community members yelling at drivers that are speeding and texting.

What course of action can you recommend? I do not want to see someone's child get hurt because of reckless driving. Thank you.

Thank you very much for following “see something and do something!” We greatly appreciate you sharing your safety concerns and helping us protect residents and community members at JBSA-Fort Sam Houston.

We shared this information regarding unsafe driving practices with our 502d Security Forces Squadron and they are working to identify the individual and prevent further safety issues. 

Our Defenders’ top priority is to maintain the safety and security of all Joint Base San Antonio residents, and we welcome your information on suspicious activity and crime tips to ensure that. 

So if you see something, please say something to the JBSA-Fort Sam Houston Base Defense Operations Center non-emergency number at 210-221-2244.
