After all, I could have gotten on base as a civy with a marine friend.
Like I said. He has a TX ranger shirt on. How about all the non- Vol, fire fighters walking around with "Somewhere-ville VFD" written on them just to show support.
Again, I think the guy was a total fool, and I certainly wouldn't do what he did. But lets look at it in another way.
But your right, if you had asked for ID, thats not really "detaining" him.
