Lawmakers take aim at tobacco use among troops, veterans
from Military Times
Congressional efforts to stamp out tobacco use among troops are expanding to veterans, too. In separate hearings on Capitol Hill, lawmakers from both parties pushed to curb the habit in the ranks and at Veterans Affairs facilities. The moves follow a years-long campaign from defense leaders and VA officials to highlight the negative health effects of tobacco products, which remain more popular with the military crowd than the general population.
