only if you're stationed oversees in a country that allows drinking at that age.

the common misconception is that since you get a military ID, they're automatically going to serve you on the base

zero tolerance is for drugs.

it's three strikes for alcohol.

also, the U.S. is the only country with a drinking age of 21. i think one other country is 20, a few are 18/19, and most have no drinking age.

Yup Yup. Because technically a Military base is US soil (sort of like a US consulate or any foreign consolate being soil of their country). So same rules apply on a US base as in the US.

^^correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it illegal to drink under 21 in any country on or off base due to UCMJ (Uniform Code of Military Justice) ^^
I'm almost 99% positive cause we had read about it in ROTC.

Ok, it is time for OFFICIAL WORD!! oooOOOOooo

US Drinking age is 21 years, no exceptions.

CO's discretion is used for when you are in a country where the drinking age is under 21, meaning if the old man says no drinky in... say... the UK, and you drink, you can go to NJP for underage drinking .

Its probably true? Alot of my friends in the states/here in canada are obsessed with booze the moment they hit 21/19 respectively, and the bars are loaded with smashed to hell college/university kids brawling/fighting/**** talking/falling all over themselves

when i was in germany and the netherlands i only saw 3 fights in the 2 weeks i was there

i thought it was 18 on bases that were within 50 miles of the border

***The minimum drinking age on a DoD installation located in a State (including the District of Columbia) shall be consistent with the age established by the law of that State as the State minimum drinking age. Minimum drinking age means the minimum age established for persons who may purchase, possess, or consume alcoholic beverages.

In the case of a DoD installation located in more than one State or in one State but within 50 miles of another State or Mexico or Canada, the minimum drinking age on that DoD installation shall be the lowest applicable age of the State in which the DoD installation is located or the State or jurisdiction of Mexico or Canada that is within 50 miles of such DoD installation.

The minimum drinking age on a DoD installation located outside the United States shall be 18 years of age. Higher minimum drinking age will be based on international treaties and agreements and on the local situation as determined by the local installation commander.

The commander of a DoD installation may waive the above requirements, if such commander determines that the exemption is justified by special circumstances. Special circumstances are those infrequent, non-routine military occasions when an entire unit, as a group, marks at a military installation a uniquely military occasion such as the conclusion of arduous military duty or the anniversary of the establishment of a military service or organization. The event must be held on a military installation. The commander shall ensure that appropriate controls are in place to prevent endangering Military Service members or the surrounding community.
