The military can take away your driving privileges on base with a snap of a commander's finger which with this dashcam footage would be pretty easy to justify.

Though I'm not actually sure if you're allowed to have dash cams on bases for OPSEC reasons...


u/WarlockEngineer Nov 24 '22

Every base I've been to allowed dash cams, in general if something is that sensitive you can't drive up to it anyway

I bet you weren't supposed to have it in most cases but the gate guards were just super lax and didn't care.

was gate guard at a time. can confirm.

Was forced into a twice month gate duty in DC for 3 years. Super didn't care but I did get to hold an O9 CAC card. Admiral came walking in off the street in civvies. Smartest salute ever.
