JBSA-Lackland hosted a reunion of the Women in the Air Force, a term for women who joined the Air Force between the years of 1949-1976. The WAF was founded in 1948 out of the Women’s Armed Service Integration Act, which enabled tens of thousands of female service members to find jobs in the Air Force. In 1976 women were accepted into the service on an equal basis with men.
