ABSTRACT
The article reports on the announcement made by U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates to allow soldiers and military personnel in high-pressure combat zones to smoke. Gates announced that such permission will start with the service academies and officer training programs as well as those in active-duty. Furthermore, the Department of Defense has introduced tobacco-cessation projects such as the "Quit Tobacco: Make Everyone Proud," a Web-based campaign that is aimed at young enlisted smokers.
