That is pretty bad. they are risking their lives daily for this country but yet they can't smoke or drink. Off duty for drinking is fine with me but as long as they are not on duty. Smoking is another thing. It doesn't alter their way of thinking and it doesn't make you do stupid things(like drinking does). Smoking is a way to release stress and be calmer i think in war they can smoke a cigarette or chew. It is a stressful time and after a big battle it would call for a smoke. If it doesn't cause any harm to others and makes a person who is fighting for our freedom feel better let the kid have a cigarette for god sakes.
