Ya know I don’t drink myself. I’ve had enough.

And as a Senior NCO I flinch when I think of the probable rise in alcohol related incidents.

However, the idea that a young man or woman is old enough to go into battle and put his/her life on the line but is not old enough to have a beer when the day/deployment is done just rubs my sense of fairness wrong. I think if you’re on active duty, you’re at the very least old enough for beer and wine until you turn 21.

It’s becoming an issue again.
