The US Military, Up in Smoke: This is news. The percentage of smokers in the military is greater than percentage in America as a whole. Some 34 percent of the military smoke, while only 25 percent of Americans smoke. At least one reason for a four percent rise in military smokers since 2002, states Col. Gerald W. Talcott with the Air Force Medical Support Agency, is the war on terror.
