It was different when I first joined the army.

It was smoking if you got 'em.

During smoke brakes, we smoked. Non smokers were put on details, (picking up our butts).

The VC/NVA couldn't smell our smokes over the crap that they smoked.

Besides we had ponchos to cover our smoking.

I was assigned a new be one time. We were set up in our position and I was teaching him how to smoke without being detected. All went well until he flipped the lit but in front of our position.

I promptly administered corporal punishment.

Any way my smoking comment was a joke. I shot depite of my smoking, not because of it.
