It has been the purpose of this exploratory essay to examine the question of what would happen if the military upped the drinking age for troops and as I've found out there's certain knowns, e.g. people would be (duly) outraged, and certain unknowns, e.g. effects on alcohol related car accidents involving military personnel and the rate of military suicides. What's clear is that more research and information needs to be gathered if that question is to be answered in a more complete and satisfying manner.
