Perhaps your friend was denied entrance to the base itself. We tried to go in ... and the guards (real Army guys) turned us around. We wanted to eat in the base cafeteria.
No go. They were very nice but said we'd have to go to the CO's office to get a pass. Being on a schedule, we moved on.
The road through the base is a PUBLIC ROAD and does not travel through any secure areas of the base. The entire base itself is FENCED OFF and gated. (Barracks, Admin offices, Cafeteria, Infirmary, motor pool, weapons depo et al)
Not sure about jurisdiction ... but I suppose if the Army decides to close the road ... they could get away with it.
