    As someone who spent half their life on military bases, that is utter BS.

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    Different bases different rules

    Sorry you feel that way. 35 years retired Army Colonel, And yes since 9-11, Military bases are continually changing their policy about Photographs and cameras. Even off the facility but potentially pointed at or could have been pointed at what is considered sensitive areas. In this case it was at Naval Amphibious Base Coronado, where an Aircraft carrier came in the night before. I was off base walked down near one of the gates, but then I decided to go around and go on base and get a better shot. Before I could get around to the front gate I was pulled over by Shore Patrol and local police. The camera was taken until they could verify that nothing of a sensitive nature was recorded and that my ID card was real and matched me. I was told NO Photos of the aircraft carrier at dock were allowed, even by base personnel. Fort Hood Texas has banned all photographic devices from within 1000 feet of any gate or entry point. (No one told them about telephoto lens) Also MP’s regularly go off base to intercept individuals taking photos from an off base position to buildings on base.

    Well, I think that we, collectively, need to evaluate reality vs. appearance. I could take photos, undisclosed, at any of the venues you mentioned folks. Like one said, guess they never heard of telephoto lenses. And why is what is out in the open so 'secret'?

    Being a leftist and being 'anti' this military garbage, what freedoms do we thank the Vets for, from Vietman to Iraq, honestly? I think that the resrrictions are 90% ego and 10% reason. And I think that there are a LOT of vets who just happen to (quietly) agree with this queer given both their experiences during engagement and the aftermath.

    I think that our obsessive secrecy is borne both out of a need for an 'enemy' (in order for us to feel whole) and a hegemonic agenda to fulfill. - David Lyga
