When my dad was in the Air Force we'd joke that if you old enough to reach the bar, they'd serve you, but you know there wasn't a stigma and it wasn't ABUSED. That's the big thing here versus Europe is the ABUSE of alcohol. We saw Italian truckers who would have a little wine mixed with quite a bit of water. no problem.

American's seem to do everything to the EXTERME and thus we have to over-drink.
You guys also aren't legally allowed to purchase alcohol and drink until you're 21, for some reason.

I still remember when you could buy beer and cigarettes at 16 here in Portugal. Now it's 18 for both.
