The Army may ditch alcohol restrictions for soldiers in the barracks | Task and Purpose

Must Read

Army officials are contemplating lifting alcohol limits in barracks. A recent summit of Army sergeants major in Texas examined the subject. One Army Forces Command unit will serve as the test subject for the new strategy. One 12-pack of beer, two 750-ml bottles of wine, and one 750-ml bottle of liquor are permitted to each soldier. According to research released this year, binge and heavy drinking pose a severe danger to military preparedness.  Consideration is being given to implementing alcohol limits in barracks for Fort Bragg, North Carolina, troops. Army Sergeant Major Michael Grinston said he was “very pleased” with the sergeant majors who attended a summit searching for creative solutions to complex problems. They broke away from the traditionally risk-averse ethos of the military; instead of spending years studying a strategy before executing it, they were ready to experiment and see what happened.
