Photos: Basic Military Trainees pass through the 'Snake Pit' at lunch

By Brian Boisvert 502nd Air Base Wing Public Affairs

U.S. Air Force basic trainees from the 331st Training Squadron at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland report in to military training instructors during lunch to request permission for their flight to enter the dining facility Sept. 20, 2022, while other MTIs observe and correct procedural errors.

Basic Military Training flights must request permission from the "Snake Pit" so there is control of how many flights enter and exit the dining facility ensuring the area does not become overwhelmed with too many people at one time.
