No beer for the troops

Va. Native Convicted Of Stealing SUV in Iraq

Imagine every day you are in very real danger of being killed, or captured and tortured. If you let your guard down you could end up with a rusty knife at your throat and a camcorder in your face. Now imagine that you commandeer a vehicle in the middle of this war zone, and the next thing you know you’re being charged with armed robbery like you’re some kind of petty car thief.

On top of all that, you’re not even allowed to slam down a couple of beers once in a while. I can’t believe they expect our solders to endure those kinds of conditions without the option of an occasional cold one.
