Use a free or paid VPN.

no, you definitely learn to hide what you're doing on the internet in high school

wouldn't expect someone with a GED to know that though

they're jealous I did in 3 months what took them 3 years.

but anyway, if it was just regular pr0n it'd be fine, but I also want to read my trap doujin hentai [favorite deeding material] and it'd be too awkward to be caught for that

In a post-Snowden world, I'd be surprised if anyone who tried to mask their traffic would be treated lightly.

Short answer is there's not a ton you can do to effectively mask it, given that they have direct access to the network you'd be using. Without using TOR they can pretty easily see where your traffic is going, encrypted traffic will stick out like a sore thumb (not to mention will likely flag network monitoring systems), and if you do use TOR it'll suddenly be questioned why you are bouncing traffic to random locations domestic and/or abroad.

Besides, I'm willing to bet that you're not the first person on a military base that browsed porn.

So now not only does he have to explain the porn, he has to explain why he's routing encrypted traffic, given that they won't exactly keep any info from other governments / authorities.
