The drinking age on Guam was raised Thursday to 21 years.
Acting Guam Gov. Michael Cruz signed new legislation that raises the drinking age from 18 to 21 and places a ban on liquor sales between 2 a.m. and 8 a.m.
The U.S. Air Force quickly complied with the new law, establishing the same restrictions on its on-base clubs. The Navy already had the higher drinking age.
The new law was the result of public outcry following the December 2006 traffic death of a bicyclist who was struck by a car driven by a 20-year-old sailor who was later sentenced to 12 years in prison on a conviction of vehicular manslaughter.
