Here’s some good food for thought this week: should the drinking age be lower for our troops? In Alaska, one state representative is reviving the drinking age debate. The argument supporting the change in law is that if a citizen is old enough to die for his or her country, he or she ought to be able to drink and smoke legally, too. Representative Bob Lynn said the bill would “enable all active duty warriors in our U.S. Armed Forces to be treated as adults, regardless of age.” In addition, for American troops deployed overseas, the drinking age can be as low as 18, depending on the country.
