As we learned a couple of months ago, the first California Dunkin' Donuts (in a long, long time, let's not start that convo again, there are NONE in Los Angeles, got it?) is on the base at Camp Pendleton, and it opened May 3. But if you're a civilian, does that mean you can't go?

Nope. Anyone can go onto the base to the Dunkin' Donuts, says Carlsbad Patch, who generously outline what is necessary to get in. You must drive in, though, and, well, not everyone is going to qualify.

The Base Access office has three requirements to allow a vehicle on base:
• A valid driver license.
• Current Registration.
• Current liability insurance. Certain people may have difficulty getting on base
• Those with a felony conviction in the past 10 years.
• Those in the country illegaly.
• Those with outstanding criminal warrants.
• Former service members with a dishonorable or a bad conduct discharge.

So if you really want your Coolatta, cruller, or cake doughnut, as long as you aren't kinda shady and have the paperwork to prove it, you may as well make the drive down to Camp Pendleton.
