For the last 8 months, a civilian with a fake [common access] card has been living in the [Special Forces Group] temp barracks claiming to be an [explosive ordinance disposal] tech,” the post says. “So embedded he was, that he had been dropping new privates off at in-processing.”
The man was caught driving under the influence Tuesday, and his story began to fall apart. Military police searched his room, reportedly discovering stolen army equipment (including rifle ammunition and a uniform), along with “a large cache of DVD porn.” The man even reportedly had a roster full of soldiers’ personal information.
Security breeches like this aren't common.

Back in the 1970s we had a sailor that was discharged at the end of his enlistment.
He was a 2ed class yeoman mate and knew all the navy paperwork for transfers and just made up the paperwork putting himself in a barracks on base at 32 street navy base while going to UCSD he also had a card for the chow hall to eat..
What better free food and housing while going to collage on the GI bill .

I have seen some strange things in the service this seems plausible except for him having a service rifle.
State side they keep those under lock and key with accountability. However I was never in an SF unite, but my pops was and he said they could get whatever they wanted most of the time way back then. Things were a lot different between the SF then and when I served by his own account. How much different I wouldn't know.

New policies will go into effect.
Most Army posts are huge with a lot of open land. Not exactly impossible to get on base.
