Todays Soldier faces many challenges during the multiple deployments into combat for extended periods of time, time away from home, and the everyday stresses that come with being an American Soldier. Alcohol helps the Soldier to relax, reduce stress, and escape the pressures of military life abroad at least for a brief moment. Facing the dangers of death and not returning home, Soldiers should have leaders that allow them to drink in theater, or should they. Senior leaders in the Army must learn to mitigate stress for Soldiers and ensure that each Soldier is focused, mentally alert, and able to perform their duties at a moments notice. Consuming alcohol does not allow Soldiers to perform their duties to the best of their abilities.
