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. Is there some/any movement on allowing families to attend Basic Military Training graduation again? Is it possible to reduce the number of attendees per trainee?

A. Thank you for your question and your Airman’s service. At this time we do not have any plans to open up graduation ceremonies to in-person audiences.

The health and safety of our trainees, staff and family members are our top priorities. Please watch the ceremonies free via live-streaming on our Facebook page at

Q. My wife and I received our first COVID-19 vaccine dose today at Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center. It only took about one hour. 

Your Airmen and staff were very courteous and helpful. I know most of them had other jobs to do, but they performed without complaining. They were outstanding representatives for WHASC and the U.S. Air Force.

A. We appreciate the feedback! Our Airmen are always poised and ready to deliver the highest level of patient care!

Since the arrival of the vaccine, we have continued to implement process improvements with safety and efficiency in mind.

We will pass along your gratitude to the Airmen working diligently on the COVID-19 vaccine line.
