Would you hide from or run to military forces

The way I see it any military force that you find still functioning should be approached very very cautiously if at all. They will in most cases be bettered armored better trained and better armed then the typical survivor and their is no telling what their orders could be from a commanding officer that could very well have them in a shoot to kill mentality.
What are your thoughts.

Soldiers in the UK, Canada, EU would be no different. I think men would be more resilient because they're fighting for home, not politics. In a real ZA I think they would lead a human resistance against the zombies.
My opinion is more like the Terminator movie resistance rather than the one portrayed in TWD.

Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray thee Lord these bites aren't deep.
Should I die before I wake, I pray thee Lord, my skull they break.

That is something to think about as well will they let you leave if you want to. If we were to take the world of The Walking Dead and use it as an example we can figure some things out. From shanes description in the hospital the military had entered sterilize mode on all civilians in the opening weeks of infection. So running to them for help then would not have been a good idea. At this point in the story however it looks as if they all just disappeared. It is my opinion that if there are any left they would be on extreme lock down. Then it comes down to their commanders. If one of them has some kind of messiah complex he may be planing on he and his soldiers starting the world over alone.
here is another question with so much of the military's combat forces and ship board forces being men would a base let you in just to kill the men and keep the women to even out population.

There is the "28 Days Later" scenario where the military will take women and kill men and in a desperate world that could be true.

Avoid them. also, consider that if you are going to try to observe them, they will have lookouts posted and also some very effective night vision stuff, maybe also movement sensors, microphones, cameras, thermal imaging etc. so not only are you trying to remain hidden from zombies, you're also trying to remain hidden from someone else whose job it is to actually look for you.
As an individual or group you would at the very least be unwelcome (another mouth to feed, person to quarantine) possibly even percieved as a threat. It might be that the area has been designated a warzone or quarantine zone and your turning up with an empty BOB and cap in hand is not going to make you an ideal asset.
When everything has died down, if there is any military infrastructure left then they will begin to secure areas, establish bases and gain territory and come looking for you. Until that time, unless otherwise instructed by loudhailer, radio message or signs, keep your bloody head down.
don't try to seak inside any Military perimiter unless your name is James bond, because thats just plain stupid.

Men(I know, being one), can tend to be pretty animalistic and "might makes right" oriented, when thrown back in the wild(look at Shane).
I'd only join up with them, if I had an equally sized, and well armed group, that had a chance to defend ourselves successfully.
In a world of no more rules or laws, there would be plenty of those trying to take whatever they want.
I'd consider someone like myself, an asset in helping to defend and guard a camp/base.

Once realized that noise attracts the zombies. I do believe that they military would adapt to it. Zombies are easy to manipulate. I would just send a tank with a soldier on top of it to lead them away. Not to mention that the tank can flatten thousands of them along the way. The perfect base would be one with only one way in or out. Probably on a mountain top or along a cliff. With a narrow entrance that can be barracaded. Preferably with a tank so it can be climbed into and used to flatten the zombies to thin out the herd.

In the movie 28 days later you see a military base that they have mines setup in a field and it helps take care of any zombies that are approaching and no one is paying attention.
As for a military base getting over ran, sure easily possible, a big base will have the gates guarded but there is sometimes depending on the base where forests on the border are not guarded nor fenced in. And even if they get overran, they can easily lock them selves in any uparmored vehicle and just sit there until they walk away.
If I wasn't in the military, then I would not go to a base or aircraft carrier. If they let you in, chances are they let someone in who was bitten or scratched and hid it just to get in the base and they thought they would be ok and now guess what, you're stuck inside a base now with them on the inside and trying to get in from the outside. And if you got on the aircraft carrier you're SOL too.
In the movie Dawn of the Dead, they newer one, you see in a news clip of the military loading civilians with wounds into a helicopter and before ya know it the base was overran.
