They don't call these guys the Greatest Generation for nothing. The blog at the Washington City Paper reports:
Among the perks available to residents of the Armed Forces Retirement Home: beer machines.
"In the canteen, at the golf course and at various spots in hallways throughout the compound, you’ll find vending machines that dispense cold beer.
"Any time, day or night, folks with a thirst and some spare change can grab a Miller, Miller Lite, Michelob or Budweiser for $1.50 a can.
"Sodas and water are just a quarter less."
I hear rumors from the old folks that you used to be able to get cigarettes this way as well. But that's probably just the Alzheimer's talking.
