 Military barracks where military personnel live and sleep, normally part of a larger military base or installation.

How to map

Draw the outline area of the area.

If the barracks are located inside a military base (which may sometimes be called "Something Barracks") then the base as a whole should be tagged as military=base. Only the individual buildings, or part of the base, where service personnel sleep and live should be tagged as barracks.
