Entire Air Force Squadron’s ‘irresponsible’ drinking lands them in hot water

An entire Air Force squadron is facing a ban on drinking outside their living quarters after a pattern of “irresponsible alcohol consumption” by members of the unit.

Members of the 721st Aerial Port Squadron, which is based out of Ramstein, Germany, were told in a memo of the new policy, which says that “alcohol consumption outside of your dorm or residence is prohibited” between the hours of midnight and 6 a.m. and also “within eight hours of any shift.”

The memo, entitled “Updated Alcohol Policy,” was first posted to the popular Air Force amn/nco/snco Facebook page and later reported by Military.com. According to the memo, the “irresponsible” consumption of alcohol by members of the squadron is “putting the lives of our airmen at risk and we will aggressively address this trend.”

 

The 521st Air Mobility Operations Wing did not immediately respond to a Fox News Digital request for comment.
