    Eglin AFB wins hands down, the thing is HUGE.

    "Located east of Pensacola, its 724 square miles of land range occupies much of the Northwest Florida panhandle. Its 101,000 square miles of air space extends over the eastern third of the Gulf of Mexico, an area extending from the panhandle to the Florida Keys. Seventeen miles of shoreline allow T&E in both a littoral environment and over a land-water interface."

    The only big bases I've been on are Pope AFB, Lackland AFB, and Fort Sam Houston.

    I've been In Norfolk, VA, but not on the base.

    I don't really know the real size of any of them.

    I've been to Lakenheath/Mildenhall. My oldest son was born at the Mildenhall Air Force hospital.

    I was stationed at RAF Bentwaters/Woodbridge. Had some good times there. :bigthumb:

    Yeah, I saw some recent pics somewhere on the web of the BW/WB twin bases. :wtc:

    I think we overstayed our welcome in the area. My experience with the British improved remarkably the further from Suffolk I roamed. The more familiar they were with our single GI's, the less they liked us. :mamoru:

    I stayed about 3 months there with my buddies sister and her husband. Also stayed at fort leonard wood missouri (with same buddies sister and her husband) it was a nice base also
    But i'd say fort knox is the biggest base i've seen
