What is the ideal legal drinking age?

In some countries the drinking age is 16 or lower; in others it is illegal to drink or purchase alcohol before the age of 21.

Some argue that a lower drinking age encourages young people to learn to respect alcohol and a high drinking age encourages covert and binge drinking.

Others argue that drinking is harmful for the brain and should be restricted.

I think if you are old enough to decide to join the military and risk having to fight and die for your country, then you should be old enough to drink. So in the US they need to either lower the drinking age to the age where one can enlist, 18, or raise the age of enlistment to 21.
