When you're in a bar, and you see a bunch of soldiers/marines/sailors/airmen on leave... BUY THEM A PITCHER OR 4, then thank them for all they've done.
Alaska wants to make it legal for an active-duty service member to drink legally, where can I sign up to support this?
From the article:
JUNEAU, Alaska – Alaska is the latest state to weigh in on a long-running argument: If you're old enough to fight and die for your country, you should be old enough to drink a beer.
An Alaska lawmaker who served in Vietnam is pushing a bill that would allow active-duty service members under 21 to drink alcohol as long as they could produce an armed forces identification card. Those under 19 — Alaska's smoking age — would be allowed to buy tobacco products.
"It's not fair that one guy in a fox hole can go home and have a beer while another guy in the fox hole can't," said Rep. Bob Lynn, R-Anchorage. "It's not about drinking, it's not about smoking, it's about equality. If you get shot at, you can have a shot."
