As stated in the policy, it covers ONLY TMD property. For instance, there is a Reserves building on Camp Mabry in Austin. This is federal property and not covered by the policy. Nor are classified or sensitive areas. Also TMD members must follow their respective service's uniform regulations or instructions. Thus, they cannot openly carry a personal weapon.
