Do all individuals, including non-civilians, need a REAL ID to enter a military base?

The REAL ID Act affects access to military bases and other federal property. Beginning May 3, 2023, all individuals entering a military base, civilians and non-civilians, will be required to have a REAL ID document for entrance.  An individual should verify with the military base to ensure this information has not changed or a particular military base has any special ID requirements.
