Starting Line: Armed forces member, but under 21? This beer could be for you

According to the Department of Defense, there are over 1.3 million active duty members of the armed forces. Many are young adults, some still in their teens.

For some that begs a question: If you have the courage to join the armed forces, should you be allowed to enjoy an adult beverage — even if you’re under 21 years of age?

This week on Starting Line we talk with Rep. Joe McDonald (R-Delano) about his proposal to allow those who are under 21, and serving in the armed forces, the ability to consume, purchase, or be in possession of alcohol.
