This is not true at all. Even if you are in a foriegn country that allows drinking at 18, as a US soldier it is still illegal for you to consume alcohol until 21 years of age. If you are drinking on base or off and are not 21 and caught then you will be brought up on UCMJ charges. It's written in black and white.

Underage kids are going to drink no matter what so at least they wont get in trouble as much if the age is 18.

If they don't allow it anymore, it was after I was discharged.

nO you can not. You can drink overseas depending on that country's laws but once you hit base it's us soil and we have to abide by the us rules

21 is fine and studies find younger drinkers are most susceptible to accidents, alcohol poisoning, etc..

Yet, In My Opinion our Military Members have proven themselves adults, accept and perform adult responsibilities and should be permitted to drink both on and off of military bases.

In Germany kids drink beer for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Doesnt matter the age. They drink beer there like we drink milk here. Because of this, they dont have the drunkeness and stupidity we have here. 10 ye old kids that drink beer and on top of that some roads with no speed limits. About 10% the dui's we have..Maybe they are on to something...
