Our commander has made a great show of belittling my unit, which is a topic for another time. But her favorite thing to keep throwing at us is "you're on title 10 orders, so you can't drink. Look it up".

Well, I did exactly that. I looked it up, or at least tried to. I haven't found anything saying that we can't, but also nothing that says we can. Has anyone else run in to this? Can anyone advise?

The entire active duty DOD is on Title 10 orders.

Ranger School has a bar, SF association has multiple bars, OCONUS locations have bars, Team rooms have bars, Air Force squadrons have bars, they even have LTs tasked with restocking the bars. There are Officer and NCO clubs that have bars. Nothing says you can't drink on Title 10. I'm on Title 10 and I'm enjoying a delicious German Heffeweissen right now, straight from Bavaria. If you couldn't drink as a Title 10 Soldier we wouldn't have a Class VI, Class VI being a class of Supply.

I always pissed me off that someone responsible for an M1 tank wasn't considered responsible enough to drink a beer, or restricting a brigade full of trained soldiers from having a drink. Maybe if they quit treating their soldiers like children, they wouldn't act like it.

He can tell you not to drink as the commander but the entire active Army is on title 10 orders.

I've never looked it up personally, but have been instructed by BN CDRs and Training Exercise CDRs that alcohol is against GO#1 as the training area(s) are considered "deployed" locations. And that, if alcohol is to be consumed, an ETP signed by a GO has to be in hand. Personally, I feel that it's only 2-3 weeks of no beer. I can wait that long to have a beer. Also, if your Commander says no drinking, then no drinking is allowed since that would be a valid and legal order.
