Finally a GI gets an exemption. I have always felt that active duty military personnel should be exempt from any law with a minimum age of 21.

May not seem fair, but neither is life. I was 19 when I went into the Air Force. The law was 21 for alcohol. I was at the airport in Denver for a flight home for a leave.

I told her I was only 20, she said " If your old enough to wear that uniform, to me your old enough for a beer." Never forgot that.
