I am in military and from my perspective, its a tough call. I am fine where the drinking age is at right now. Most 18 year olds in the military are just coming out of basic military training. Many that I have meet are still kids by all intensive purposes. They are grown up enough to learn and do a job, but I don't think they are mature enough to consume alcohol. Hell, even a lot of 21+ year olds are not mature enough to consume alcohol. If military kids right out of technical training could drink, oh lord!! It would be a mess!
