Joint Base San Antonio (JBSA) is a United States military facility located in San Antonio, Texas, USA. The facility is under the jurisdiction of the United States Air Force 502d Air Base Wing, Air Education and Training Command (AETC). The wing's three Mission Support Groups perform the installation support mission at the three bases that form JBSA.

The facility is a Joint Base of the United States Army Fort Sam Houston, the United States Air Force Randolph Air Force BaseLackland Air Force Base, and Camp Bullis which were merged on 1 October 2010.

Randolph is named after Captain William Millican Randolph, a native of Austin, who was on the base naming committee at the time of his death in a crash. It serves as headquarters of the Air Education and Training Command (AETC) as well as the Air Force Personnel Center (AFPC) and is known as "the Showplace of the Air Force" because of the Spanish Colonial Revival Style architecture in which all structures including hangars were constructed. The symbol of the base is a large water tower atop Building 100, housing the headquarters for Randolph's major flying unit, the 12th Flying Training Wing (12 FTW). With its distinctive architecture, the wing's headquarters has come to be known throughout the Air Force as "the Taj Mahal," or simply "The Taj".

Randolph Air Force Base is home to more than 30 Department of Defense units including Headquarters Air Education and Training Command, Air Force Personnel Center, Air Force Recruiting Service, and the 12th Flying Training Wing.

The 902d Mission Support Group performs the installation support mission at Randolph. It is the focal point for all base activities. It is composed of the 902d Force Support Squadron; the 902d Communications Squadron; the 902d Civil Engineer Squadron; the 902d Contracting Squadron; the 902d Logistics Readiness Squadron, and 902d Comptroller Squadron. These units serve the needs of the wing and tenant units on the base, including more than 15,000 people on the base and more than 24,000 Air Force retirees in the local area. (Courtesy of Wikipedia)
