    Can you get into a TWIC facility with a military ID?

    I suppose. But TWIC is the gold standard for accessing sensitive infrastructure including Ports

    Only thing i found was that they are trying to, or did, allow a TWIC to access military bases.

    Active duty cards do. Retired cards don't.

    only by what i read here, unless you have a secret clearance, then no..??

    The legislation also notes that TWIC-carrying workers who also have a current DOD secret level clearance “shall be considered exempt from further vetting when seeking unescorted access at DOD facilities.”

    Defense Bill to Allow Drivers to Use TWIC Cards as ID at Military Bases

    best i can say is call the TSA and ask them, and get back to us with the answers.

    Most security guards are lucky to read the directions they are supposed to enforce. AT the VERY few facilities I go to that ask for a TWIC card, you either have a TWIC card or you must be escorted.

    So you can get on base with a twic card.

    But no answer if you can into a twic facility with a military id.
