Absolutely lower the drinking age for military personnel. When I was in the Army I couldn't get over how stupid it is that I can fight and die for my country but I am not considered responsible enough to have a beer. This country is so messed up with some of its laws. At 18 a person is considered an adult and supposedly has the maturity to decide who should run this nation but not yet responsible enough to drink. Why is that? Where do they come up with this crap?
