    Default Former Jarhead to Current Jarheads...

    Just curious... I served the Misguided Children from '97 to '01. Back then, we smoked in our barracks rooms, even though it was not technically "allowed," and nobody (not even the non-smokers) made a stink about it. Hell, half of us would smoke while running our 3-mile PFT (only a slight exageration). E-cigs weren't available back then, but I'm sure the Marine Corps of the late 90s would have fully supported the technology. What's their position on vaping now? Do they allow it indoors? Is it allowed in your personal barracks quarters? On boat? etc...? Just curious how the Marines of today are being treated by their magnificent, if sometimes beaurocratic, superiors.

    Semper Fi leather necks!! I was in from '90 to' 94. Same as above paired smokers together. I was in the Air Wing though... We had it good compared to the grunts.

    My fellow Brothers of Arms, I was in from '71 to '75. I remember my PT instructor lead us in PT with a stogie crammed in and he never took it out while running and dang, that man could run! I also remember my DI telling us that smoking was a great way of keeping the skeeter bugs off of you or at least making them go to the next guy. Go figure.
    And Semper Fi!

    92-98 here, 2841
    Would spark up a Red within 20 feet of the finish line on the PFT
    Bootcamp final PFT 19min20~ seconds...went downhill from there

    Would definitely like to find out more on what the new corps is all about

    Semper Fi, my brothers.

    We smoked, we drank, we chased tail.

    And then we got smarter and found out that chasing tail was a lot more fun. Not to mention that we never woke up with a hang over chasing tail!
    And that's all I smoke now!

    I've been in since '07 and the whole DOD has taken a stance against tobacco, most recently noticed in the fact that base smokes can no longer be cheaper than out in town. Also just saw this on reddit from a devil down in 29 stumps...

    Spent 11 months in the stumps for MOS school, then another 6 months in 97 at CAX...it sucked!
