When I was in the US Air Force stationed at Pease AFB, NH (a SAC base then)
my work shop was located in the RAPCON.  We had a full time FAA rep whose
office was also there.  His job (IFIRC, after all it was 1965-1967) was to
make sure the USAF followed all the FAA rules and regs.  So at least at that
time, in that situation, the FAA did seem to have some say in how the USAF
ran its approach, departure and en-route procedures.
