Alcohol-Related Charges in the Armed Forces
Hire a Military Criminal Defense Attorney Today!
Stars and Stripes recently carried a report titled "U.S. military's alcohol-soaked
culture taking toll on service members." In it, the paper discussed
the results of an Institute of Medicine study which found that 43 percent
of soldiers serving on active duty admitted to binge drinking in the past
month. Heavy drinking occurs in barracks on domestic bases and abroad,
at social dinners and on officers' nights out, and in many cases it
is encouraged by a culture of alcohol consumption in which service members
feel compelled to consume large amounts of alcohol in order to maintain
camaraderie with their fellows.
