As we first reported on Monday, the Burger King in Freedom Crossing on post is now selling beer.

Newschannel 9 viewer Wayne Sonnier sent us this picture he snapped from the restaurant. Fort Bliss officials tell us the Burger King is a tester market for selling alcohol.

"Freedom Crossing is a popular destination, it's natural that we have alcohol establishments there," Major General Dana Pittard said. "We have an Irish Pub there and they actually serve alcohol in the movie theater, which I wasn't initially for but it's worked just fine."

Major Pittard added that restaurants on post aren't allowed to sell anyone in uniform any alcoholic drinks.

"Major Pittard added that restaurants on post aren't allowed to sell anyone in uniform any alcoholic drinks." - Haha are they serious? These are businesses trying to make money and I have witnessed first hand them serving alcoholic beverages to uniformed soldiers, they just make sure to pure it into a glass or cup that is not see through. The army is a joke, don't let their stupid propaganda fool you.
