http://weaselzippers.us/181312-hagel-suggests-he-favors-tobacco-sales-ban-at-military-installations/ This is just one of the articles around the web. Can't believe there is so much time and effort dedicated to making the military a "safe place". What the he!! is wrong with these people? Has Bloomberg taken over as Secretary of Defense? If they want to make the military a safer place how about not sending troops places where people shoot at them? How about not having people load bombs on airplanes? How about not sending people deep under the ocean in a steel tube with a nuclear reactor? How about not sending people up in the air in aluminum tubes that travel 500 mph? Seriously, don't these people have anything important to do? In case anybody wasn't paying attention, the military is a dangerous and violent occupation. Choosing to smoke or not to smoke is a personal decision. Leave the troops alone and let them do their jobs. We don't need any more of this nanny state foolishness.
