No. The only places in other countries that are considered "American soil" are embassies and consulates. Military bases are generally on land leased by the host country.

Correct. Some people claim that it is American soil because children born there are American citizens. While this is true, this is not because the base is considered part of the US, rather, it's because the US's Immigration and Naturalization Act, long story short, says that children of American citizens are American citizens too. They will be issued a "certificate of birth abroad" by the US embassy/consulate near that particular base, which is the normal procedure in such a case.

I believe you have to be born in America to be a citizen, or apply for citizenship. The previous answer is incorrect. If you are born in another country but your parent is an American citizen they you too are an American citizen. They just have to fill out a CRBA form or Consular Report of Birth Abroad. If you are born on a US military base that is also considered US territory.
