    Hi,

    Base Access

    A Department of Defense (DoD) I.D is required when entering a base. Some bases may require every person in the vehicle to present an I.D. If you are a passenger and do not have a DoD I.D. you can present a valid driver’s license in most cases. Some bases will require scanning your I.D. If your I.D. is not up-to-date you will not be able to gain base access.

    If you need to enter a base and do not have a DoD I.D., or do not have an escort, you will need to visit the base’s visitor center. Visitor centers are usually located near the main gate.

    If you are a non-military caregiver you can get on base accompanied by a child in possession of a valid military identification. Additionally you will need to possess an active power of attorney or custodial agreement listing you as the current guardian. If you are driving on base you will also need to present your driver’s license, registration and insurance information.

    I would contact the base to get more information if you are trying to visit some kind of museum, event etc.

    The only base I know of that doesn't have these standards is Quantico Marine Corps base in Quantico, Virginia. You have to go through a security check to get onto the base, and present US ID, but it's open to the public too. Are there any others?

    I've been to Hill in Utah and Norfolk Naval Base, both have very stringent controls. I had to present valid reasons, company business, to be permitted.

    Overseas base security tends to be more stringent with Security. Stavanger hosts US Air Force personnel in Norway... good luck getting onto that base.
