If you don't dishonor your country you are allowed to visit bars, casinos etc. in service uniform... (for Germany)
It is the duty of every superior to take care of other soldiers who disrespectfully represent their uniform in public.
That's why i'd be allowed to send soldiers home who are too drunk even if they don't weir a uniform in Germany...

I hear there will be an open bar
Ya know, I went to Hooters restaurant with my buddies near Fort Hood (about 45 minutes away), I saw a couple of guys in NCO Green Class A drank a few of the beers. Is it a no-no?

In Serbia we usually have SAJ special forces around stadiums during large sporting events.

Around the streets its not uncommon to see a group of Conscripts talking [That should be over by next year, we are getting rid of conscription]

I SOMETIMES saw a military vehicle, like a truck or so, but never seen anything like a Battle tank or APC around.

They don't take the chance here, they know at least 1 person will drink too much piss and do something stupid.

You shouldn't order a drunk soldier home, he'll probably take a swing and from there it just all goes to **** and ends up with people in jail. Get his mates to take him home or if he's gone lone ranger then just stay with him and listen to his crap and make sure he doesn't get into too much trouble. And like they say, there is no rank on the piss.

Well normally even drunk soldiers know that it's a good thing to follow orders of an officer... normally, well the way to order the friends to take him home is the best way though that would end the party for them as well . Anyway if he's so drunk he won't be that much resistance...

As far as I know, soldiers are discouraged from going to public houses, bars, clubs, whatever in uniform.
In the next town up from Camp Lejuene, every night club and bar has a "NO MARINE ALLOWED" sign.

I would say Zandarmeria, and not SAJ.

No surprises there. They've always been that way.
