As of a few minutes ago, I can legally consume alcohol!:D Yep, I'm 21!

However, before anyone wishes me a happy birthday I would please like you to take a moment of silence for those that have died and for those that are still fighting to preserve our safety and freedom. Every year on my birthday I thank our armed forces that I can celebrate it however I choose without fear of attack by either terrorists or foreign nations. So even though it may be my birthday, I would rather everyone congratulate the members of our military instead of me. They are the ones who deserve more thanks than we could ever give. They are the ones who fight so that I may have a good time on my birthday. They are the ones who are willing to give the ultimate sacrifice so that we can all sleep soundly. To those of you who are fighting for and have died for my freedom to celebrate my birthday, myself and my fellow Americans will never be able to thank you enough for what you do.

Cool story bro
You're really going to "cool story bro" a tribute to our military? You're entitled to your own opinion, but at least have some respect for the men and women that died for your freedom to have that opinion.

Yeah, my 21st birthday sucked because I soon realized after a couple drinks... this isn't nearly as fun without the fear of getting caught. Well, this sucks. :(


Happy birthday though man and god bless the armed forces!

It's funny how that crap works. I bet I drank more alcohol before I turned 21 then I have in the last four years and I didn't start drinking until I was 17.

For my birthday I got a vacation to a hotel/casino for me and the girlfriend for 2 nights. Leaving for Dover, Delaware in a few hours!:D Anyone on MM from Delaware who wants to come out tomorrow night send me a PM. Any member of our armed forces who is at Dover Downs tomorrow night gets at least one round on me.

Currently drinking some Coors Light and Yuengling. Feels weird that now I'm legally allowed to drink it. Anyone in the Dover, Delaware area feel free to send me a PM to meet up. Like I said, if you're military you get at least one (but probably a few more than one) round on me because you guys deserve it.

Nice tribute to the Armed Forces, and happy birthday.
Thanks, and as far as the armed forces I can't thank them enough. Men and women have been fighting and dying for over 200 years so that I may celebrate my birthday safely and in whatever legal manner I choose. As far as I'm concerned I will never be able to say "thank you" enough to earn this gift of freedom that they have bought for me with their blood, sweat, and tears. Any time I see a member of our armed forces, whether it be in the airport or the mall or anywhere, I make an honest effort to shake their hand and let them know at least one person appreciates what they do for this country.

I have worked a lot of retail jobs and have sold cars at dealerships, every time I saw a person in uniform I would approach them just to thank them for their service. Even if they were just passing through the store to get to the rest of the mall it is worth it to me to take the time out of my day to tell them that what they are doing is appreciated by at least one person. I live near Annapolis, Maryland (for those that don't know, this location is home to the Naval Academy and several significant military bases), so I routinely run into several uniformed members of our armed services on a daily basis. I remember one guy, whose name and branch will remain anonymous, actually broke out in tears just because I went out of my way to walk up to him and tell him that no matter what his job was in the military I was very thankful that he would contribute in some way to providing my freedom. That man crying in the airport will always remain in my memory, because he told me that many others had spit on him and protested the war in Iraq and Afghanistan but he had never had someone just come up and thank him at random. He told me it meant more to him than even his own family congratulating him, just that a complete stranger would walk up and tell him that his service was appreciated brought him to tears of happiness. That event made me realize just how important it was to thank every member of our armed forces whenever I see them, because every single member of our military needs to know that at least one person is infinitely grateful for what they do.

So like I said, if you're military and you're at Dover Downs on the nights of August 7th or 8th, you're getting at least one round on me.:D:D

Happy birthday Enzo! :rockon

I get to feel the disappointment in exactly 1 month. I know it's not going to be as much fun drinking without that fear :sorry
