smoking ban in the military?

read this in usa today this morning. some wizard in the defense department is proposing a smoking ban in the military. we tried that in sac when i was an nco academy instructor, when we weren't at war, and it didn't work. article said 37% of soldiers, 36% of marines, and 50% of combat veterans smoke (compared to 20% of the general population). it's going to be pretty shitty when the military has to start disciplining members for tobacco-related offenses. shame on them for endangering their health that way!
