If you are old enough to fight & die for your country, you should be able to buy a beer. Maybe we should make the age of military enlistment 21. I like that even better

What a good idea. I also believe that conscription should be mandatory and the voting age should also be 21. But, that would be off topic.

Many bases will serve military members under the age of 18 depending on the state. It is still not a good idea for those under 18 to drink. The brain has not fully grown and developed until approximately age 22.

And yes, really...it is the law.
