The Air Force today said it found 32,216 instances of inappropriate or offensive material at bases around the world including explicit magazines at its Air Education and Training Command headquarters in San Antonio during inspections late last year.
The service found 631 instances of pornography in the health and welfare inspections at more than 100 installations worldwide.
It also reported finding 27,598 instances of inappropriate material, ranging from posters and calendars to graffiti.
At the AETC headquarters on Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph, 40 explicit magazines were uncovered.
The items there and elsewhere were documented or destroyed, the Air Force said.

Glad to see boys are still being boys.
During much of my career, they could have found that much in one squadron. The RSU (mobile) always had a rather impressive collection of pornographic magazines.
But those days are long gone...
It boggles the imagination!
How did we win two world wars?
I remember the health and wellness inspections however porn wasn’t contraband and my roommate had his fair share.
The female dorms produced some interesting items as well though they were not confiscated or put on display.
Maybe it was because they would have vibrated right off the table?
I still remember the MAC politically incorrect criteria. “Eighteen to eighty, blind or crippled, if they can’t walk we’ll carry them”.
Get rid of all that suggestive “Nose art”. That should be a great morale booster. SSGT, USAF 17 Aug 1961, 16 Aug 1969.
We used to have strippers in the club on base back in the 70s.
I’m curious as to how much of that material was found aboard Air Force One?
After watching one of many TV shows or movies depicting violence, mayhem and killing I am always grateful if a female breast was not shown. We all know breast in not natural and must be hidden but beheading is fine./sarc
I guess if the 2nd Amendment can be rendered moot why not the first.
“in not natural” = “are not natural” two fingers on the touch pad make for some strange edits.
Ensign Pulver ... Underlining the good parts ... No women around ... Can’t hold that against him.
I wonder that if, in this new, enlightened era, gay porn is considered inappropriate ...
They teach children sex education in elementary school and they have classes in high school on how to put on a condom and hand out free condoms. But adults in the military cannot have magazines, posters, and calendars on base. This country and its leaders have gone absolutely insane. We don’t stand a freaking chance in hell of surviving this idiocy.
In Germany, we had Playboy mags in the day room, paid for by the unit. Slot machines in the clubs, that subsidzied the food and the beer. Hamburgers 25 cents, happy hour German beer was 20cents a bottle. This was 72, around 73 they took out the slots, and the prices skyrocketed.
No doubt the porn found was gay porn... it's the Air Force, afterall.
Incredible that someone is actually documenting the finds, reporting it, and that we are seeing command wide numbers. Don’t they have something better to do with their time.
That is just pitiful. The inspectors, not what they found.
“An’ if sometimes our conduck isn’t all your fancy paints,
Why, single men in barricks don’t grow into plaster saints;”
What they didn’t tell you was it was gay porn.
(Seriously, that would probably be alright, if not required. Sigh!)
Runway Supervisory Unit. No, I'm not AF. I worked in the Motor Pool for a contractor at Willy, when Willy was a base.
By getting rid of the straight nose art and going gay.
first saw that B24 on a trip to Wright-Pat AF museum in 1970. Have a picture of it somewhere at home.
I first saw it there as a boy, on a visit to the museum with my dad. Gave him an opportunity to enlighten me as to some of the ‘facts of life’ ...
and then there is Angeles........ Items too numerous to grasp
The study is positively trivial compared to Angeles
So they found the magazine rack at the AAFES store...
Just after I left UPT, they banned the "Dollar Ride" collages that students gave their IPs.
I always got a laugh out of serious briefing and learning at a table with such...uh....artwork under the glass.
No, no, no. Those were 'fashion shows'.
Enough about your personal fanstasies. ;)
Exactly my thought....how much labor did it take to do this nonsense.? What Exactly is a inappropriate image...? NFL Cheerleader poster?
In my 20 years in the Air Force the only girly boys I ran into were sailors.
I was a flight simulator instructor at Willy 1973 - 1979.
Strawberry Bitch is a magnificent restoration, esp seen up close and personal. Apparently, tho, her ball turret is being “borrowed” to put it in Memphis Belle.
Notice the slight color differentiation in the desert pink on the nose? That’s from the USAF Museum messing up the nose markings and having to do a partial repaint..
Thank goodness they didn’t go search life support ....lots of inflatables there....
Willy was in the middle of nowhere back then. It’s on the edge of nowhere now.
