Re: Learning how to respect other SubChatters

Because those are two separate things, and are not automatically linked. Respect for an underage soldier does not mean you give the soldier anything he wants. You give him that which he can handle.

If he/she can handle the quick decision-making, judgemant calls, responsibilties and stress of a hostile area such as Iraq or afghanistan then he/she can definately handle a drink and if they can't, you deal with it like you do with somebody that is 21+. It is a travesty that we deny 18-20 year old adult veterans the right to do something that a 21 year old bum takes for granted. A valid Active Duty ID card or a special driver's license stamped with "VETERAN" should be sufficient proof that a young adult has earned the right to drink regardless of what we think of the war.
