Looks like the troops in Iraq will finally get a chance to drink a long-overdue beer!

I'm actually surprised they didn't already have beer.

When I was in Baghdad for the 2005 super bowl we were allowed 3 a piece I think. It may have only been 2. Either way I got an extra one, one of my roommates didn't drink, so he gave his to me and our other roommate. It was pretty cool that they actually allowed it. It was pretty common to be able to buy hard liquor from some kid off the street. But that was the only beer I ever got. I did however drink vodka once from a red and black 12 oz. can. Looked just like a beer can, only with vodka in it.
