Beer Today, Gone Tomorrow

So much for beerforsoldiers.com:

US soldier ordered to shut beer site: A SOLDIER who created www.beerforsoldiers.com, a Web site that lets people buy a beer online for a US soldier, has been ordered by the top brass to stop running his site.

According to Stars and Stripes, Sgt Dale Rogers, in Iraq with Company C, 1st Battalion (air assault), 503rd Infantry Regiment was ordered to retreat from the site after the regimental briefs said it was unethical.

A regimental spokesman said that whatever his intentions, the Web site was illegal as Rogers seems to be using his association with the Army as a way to solicit funds for beer.

Undeterred, Rogers has handed the site over to his brother to run, although that might not be enough for the army who want it shut down.

So make up for it when they get home.

    Sounds like a rout to me.

    And what’s with the “regimental briefs?” Not to be a homophobe or anything but doesn’t that sound a little gay?

    What could be more American than a Beer run?

    And what could be more 21st century than an on-line beer run?

    This order sounds downright un-American to me.

    It must have come from one of them neo-con moles in the Pentagon.

  4. Hey, I’ve got a thought on what might fit the 21st better than buying beer for those about to die we’d salute…

    How about bringing them the hell home and letting them buy their own beer, bullet free?

    FYI, even tho his brother may be running the site, I went and tried, and you can’t buy the beer no mores…

    It looks like Barry has been dipping into the beer he’d been saving for returning soldiers. Oh well, after a year in the Middle East, their capacity for alcohol is usually pretty low anyway.
