http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2007/11/03/nbingedrink103.xml I hope the link works. Today´s Telegraph has an article that highlights the hazardous culture of binge drinking in the armed forces. This is something that has always worried me, but then I´ve thought that it was a problem throughout our modern chav society and the modern armed forces reflects society. However, apparenty 17% of males in the military have a severe drinking problem compared with just 6% in civvy strasse. It goes on to talk about the ambivalent attitude of the chain of command and the institutionalised drinking that sustains this culture. I agree that there is a problem, do you? Any ideas how to change the culture?
