Shouldn't that be "for military or related purposes?" 

The military "owns"recruiting centers in malls, that wouldn't be a good fit either. 

Martin brought up that in some counties, the military is the police. 

Defining all the police stations as military facilities would equally be wrong. 

There has to be some exceptions to that rule - as it mot a "military" facility, but operated by the DoD none the less. 

Weve had a lot of discussions how landuse=civic is really hard because dragging ownership (public or privately operated facility?) really makes classification and definition for usage of a blanket landuse difficult.

This should be hotel+access=private + operator=DoD. 

Since there is only 4 of these edge cases, it should be fine to tag them this way and not dilute the military landuse.
