Unvaccinated personnel must continue to follow the guidance outline in Guidance Memo #61. The COVID protocols outlined in the information on this site will be adhered to in order to maintain a culture of safety, and to mitigate risk to the force, risk to the mission and risk to the community.

Inclement Weather Plan
  • In the event of inclement weather the ceremony will be relocated to an Airmen Training Complex (dormitories) and the announcement will be made on the BMT Facebook page.
  • Due to size and space limitations of the dormitories, visitors WILL NOT be allowed to attend the ceremony in person if relocated. The ceremony will be live-streamed on the BMT Facebook page.
  • Once the ceremony is complete and the inclement weather passes, graduates will march to the Pfingston Reception Center to meet their visitors.

*Please make sure you stay tuned to the BMT Facebook page for announcements.  The safety of our trainees and their families is our first priority.
