There are tons of new development to the north of Ft. Sam, centering around Austin Highway and Harry Wurzbach.
Ft. Sam is adjacent to some of the wealthiest areas of the city, primarily Terrell Hills.

I am also retired (2006), but at still working as a contractor on Lackland AFB, so I will try to provide you with some useful information.

First, as you may know, there are three main military bases here and two smaller Army posts. The main ones are Lackland AFB, Ft Sam Houston, and Randolph AFB. The two posts are Camps Bullis and Stanley. There are some facilities at Bullis, such as a clinic and a small exchange; but Stanley is a weapons storage area and little else.

There are two main military hospitals, Wilford Hall on Lackland and Brook Army Medical Center at Ft Sam.

As you might expect, the military retiree community is huge here. The town is very military-friendly and between that and the warmer weather, it draws a lot of retirees here. As such, there are numerous apartment complexes within a half hour's drive of both Lackland and Ft Sam that have military and retired military residents.

Personally, I would recommend looking west and northwest of Lackland, as most of that area is newer therefore the apartment complexes are as well. The corridor along 151 has several new complexes going up so you should be able to find one that fits your needs with little trouble. From there it is only a 15-minute or so drive to Lackland and Wilford Hall.

The area around Ft Sam is older, as are the apartments, so finding one in nice shape may be a little more challenging.

Hope that helps, and welcome to San Antonio!

Cheers! M2
Great INfo...


You may want to check into the area just south of Lackland AFB Hwy 90/IH 10 and Loop 410...lots of new apartmens. And close to Wilford Hall Hosp.
