They also train in civilian airspace. Not all MOAs are on bases, in fact a number of them are nowhere near bases. There is no regulation that says they can't train in civilian airspace. Trying to only train over a base is a disaster waiting to happen, especially when you're talking ACM, or something like that.

Military pilots (such as helicopter pilots) occasionally have to meet with the FAA. That flight is considered training, and takes place in civilian airspace. In flight refueling is considered training, and takes place in civilian airspace all the time. There are a lot of different things that are considered training that take place off base, all the time.

Hickam abuts the international airport in Honolulu (they use the airport runways, because they don't have their own), all their fighter training takes place in civilian airspace, north of the island. There's nowhere else to train.
