We loved this adverisement that aired during the Super Bowl.

First, our troops cannot partake of the company’s products while serving in Iraq. Ostensibly, this is so as not to offend Muslim sensibilities. On the other hand, I spoke with an ER doctor who served with the National Guard in Tikrit. He said that an alcohol-free war zone has had a dramatic effect in reducing the number of accidents and accidental deaths. Not that he is a teetotaller; he drinks and smokes.

Second, you can sign up for the military at age 18 but you can’t legally drink a Bud until age 21. You can put your life on the line serving your country but God forbid you down a few cold ones when you get back home.
