When then Chief of Staff of the Air Corps Lt. Gen. Hap Arnold visited San Antonio in December 1942, he spoke to Airmen in training at the San Antonio Aviation Cadet Center—today’s Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas. He spoke in front of 10 acres of air cadets, pilots and crew that would fight the coming key air battles of World War II. The photograph of the speech and arrayed Airmen made its way around the world and became the iconic photograph of Air Corps training in World War II.
