Supporting The Troops
Chef Loves Beer style. Troops in Iraq will get to drink beer during the Super Bowl this year! There is a ban on drinking alcohol in combat zones.

Odierno's memo didn't say what kind of beer the military will bring in; virtually all goods made available to U.S. troops are imported. Iraq is largely dry, but beer is available on the local market.

The soberly written memo didn't leave much wiggle room on a paramount issue for beer lovers: quantity. "Consumption of alcoholic beverages pursuant to this waiver is limited to two 12-ounce beers per individual," it said.

It wont get them drunk but will allow them a little normalcy.
