I'm surprised the admin hasn't banned smoking in Afghanistan.

I'm sure they have, Rap.  For instance, civilians are not supposed to send cigs or Skoal.  Ridiculous.  Love this pic even more!  LOL

True...tobacco products are banned from mail being received.  But they sell all of that at the PXs...tax-free.   :patriot:

Being more than stupid about conditions in Afghanistan, do they have PX's, for instance, at FOBs?

One more thought:

When I think of men like this putting it all on the line for the freedoms I tend to take so likely, and then I think of lowlife POS like that bicycle guy or the scum cic he reports to getting all the attention and press, it makes me nauseous.  Just sayin

Yes, at most of them.  If it's a small FOB, they might only have a single-wide trailer or something, but you can usually get the basic necessities at those.

I've only spent a few days in Afghanistan (and that was enough), but AAFES has a pretty big presence there.  They not only run the PXs, but they manage the Pizza Hut, Subway, etc. restaurants that tend to be on the bigger bases.
