Just to be clear. Use of "most" FAMCAMP facilities requires base access. While non-retired combat veterans enjoy many benefits after they leave the service, base and MWR access is not usually among of them.
Military Retirees on the other hand are treated as if they are still "on duty" (veterans or not - though most are by the time they get 20 years) since they are transferred to the "retired reserves" and as such are eligible for recall to active service in time of emergency (unlike separated servicemen and women who are not retirees). Retirees get an ID card that grants base access as well as full services (like commissary, BX, and MWR).
