Curfew On Soldiers under 21

The military is trying to prove it has zero tolerance for sexual assault. Every branch is trying to crack down on alcohol use, which is deemed to be a major factor. Naval officers now do nightly patrols of bases, checking for heavy drinking or reckless behavior. The Army has a 9 p.m. curfew for soldiers under age 22. Last month, thousands of service members role-played scenarios and watched explicit videos of rape scenes as part of a training program. Some troops grumble -- the military's approach is too simplistic; it treats all soldiers as criminals.

Simple. Don't enlist until you're 21 because apparently you're still viewed as a baby.
