Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif. --
Airmen from Basic Military Training stand in formation on the flightline after getting off a C-17 April 17, 2020, at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif. Typically, members leaving BMT from Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas, travel on commercial aircraft to get to their technical school locations. However, under current COVID-19 circumstances, the Airmen are flown on military aircraft to designated bases and transported to their tech school locations by bus. The students went through a 14-day quarantine at BMT prior to flying.
