I think those in the military should be able to drink.
If they're old enough to fight and die they should be old enough to have a drink.

I agree with your fight a war, and drink a beer stance. Personally I prefer that if you are old enough to pay taxes, you are old enough to drink beer.
I was 19 when I got out of tech school and got a job with Motorola. The next spring when doing my taxes, and signing off a boatload of money, I could not drink a toast to celebrate my entry into adulthood by signing my 1040. 16 years later, it still torques me off.
If you're not gonna outlaw it for all, then those who are in the military should be able to drink
They are able to drink at 18 on base just not hard liquor. The Marine Corps (at least while I was in) seems to even encourage it.
