Fort Sam Houston
Located in the heart of San Antonio, JBSA-Fort Sam Houston is the birthplace of military aviation and saw the development of the concept of airborne operations. The post evolved into the “Home of Army Medicine” after World War II and into the “Home of Military Medicine”. The post is proud of its historic role and the many initiatives to retain the historic character of the post while serving as a modern, model Joint Base for the future.

Fort Sam Houston was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1975 as one of the Army's oldest installations and now part of Joint Base San Antonio. Fort Sam Houston boasts the largest collection of historic structures, careful preservation of these areas allows the post to live with its history, surrounded by existence of the traditions of excellence established when the first soldier arrived here in 1845.
