    If our brave men and women are willing to fight and die for our country they should be able to drink, smoke, etc. whatever the **** they want to. This is completely ridiculous.

    Oh man, my grandpa (WWII vet) and my Great grandpa (WWI vet) would be rolling in their graves right now.


    I'm a liberal by all accounts, and all for government intervention for those who need it, but 18 is 18. If you can die for your country or be tried, convicted, and sentenced to death for a serious crime at 18, then you sure as hell should have the right to smoke and drink in this country.

    The alcohol ban for the military is only in countries where alcohol is illegal. Soldiers stationed in the states or in europe for instance are still able to drink.

    It annoys me when some pc moron takes certain things away from troops and these ****ers have the nerve to bash Christians for trying to impose morality.. I remember when they banned troops from having sex with the Drinky Girls(prostitutes from Russia,Philippines and Korea) in Korea,that was one of the few things that made South Korea an enjoyable place and those pc morons took it away.
    Iv'e got some good stories about drinky girls. I was in kores in the 70's. But I would have to tell you about them downstairs.

    1. They CANNOT ban porn. It's protected under the 1st amendment.

    2. Alcohol is only banned in certain (mostly middle eastern) countries.

    3. Banning tobacco abuse of authority. Tobacco is legal to own for persons over 18.

    4. These people need to lay off the crack.

    They can ban certain types of porn depending on the country your duty station is located. For example in Korea the only porn were allowed to have was playboy magazines,perfect 10 magazines and girls gone wild dvds. If you actually wanted real porn you would have to go off post/camp to the back rooms of one of the shops to buy real porn.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    People may be surprised to read this, but I don't know if I think this is a good idea. It does seem a bit harsh, although it does seem logical. I dunno.

    The entire military should say that no one will take their cigs unless they can pry it out of their cold dead hands.
