How alcohol attacks the brain…?

First, alcohol targets the brain’s center for decision-making processes and muscular coordination in the fore brain. Then it unhinges the mind’s normal system of checks and balances, leaving emotions unchecked by affecting the mid-brain. Finally, alcohol attacks the brain stem and the body’s vital functions. Preventing alcohol incidents is a must for mission effectiveness. (Graphic illustration by Senior Airman Stephen Cadette)
