    I have been out of the service since the 90's and was wondering if I could get onto the local base by my house with only the veterans I.D. I know that most of them used to require active duty I.D. but how would someone get onto the base once they have separated

    What is a 'veterans ID'?

    If you mean you are retired, you have an ID card and can go onto any regular US military facility.

    If you are a veteran other than above, you cannot go back on to the base unless it's open to everyone in the area...special events, etc.

    One exception would be a disabled Vet...they have different privileges depending on their disability percentage.

    If you have a valid military ID regardless of what it is, and it's not expired,
    you should be able to get on base.

    HOWEVER, if you are DRIVING on the base you will have to stop and get
    a pass at PASS AND ID by the main gate for your vehicle by showing the vehicle registration and insurance.

    Unless you have a sticker like this on your vehicle, you have to stop....
    However Air Force bases IIRC are the ONLY bases that they let you on with just an ID and no sticker.

    Picture I.D. (drivers license) & insurance (possible vehicle search) = visitors pass.

    Air Force bases will not let you on without a Military ID. The DOD stickers no longer give you access. IF you are not "retired" "AD" "reserve" "guard" etc your not getting on base, unless you have someone sign you on.

    Not that simple for an AF base and I sure hope not for other services....

    Some bases have other 'public' establishments on there, and they will usually let you on if you know what you're talking about.
    I won't go into details, but I visit a local base whenever I want to go to a certain place :p
