Way too simple to answer right off the bat like that.
What kind of complex? Armory? Air Base? Port? Depot?
Also, what is the level of access there? One road? Open roads? Limited access roads?
Are you in the zone where someone who wants to hit the base would hit you as collateral damage? What if they quarantine you and you can't get in the base? You're SOL just like anyone else.
What if the military wanted to cordon off themselves and do a scorched earth around a perimeter so they can clear the path all around for their security? You might be collateral damage too.
Too many variables.
