Specifically, I assume he is in Iraq/Afganistan, and has NO access to any brewing supplies.
If you were not really worried about quality, but wanted something "beer-like" with alchohol, then I'd imagine you could simply mix 5 gallons worth of NA beer, with 4lbs of sugar. Throw in some bakers yeast, and wait a week. Bottle, etc.
That would produce a 4.5%ABV beer-like drink. AKA known as "Prison Beer".
