Tobacco Cessation - Be Ready, Be Fit, Be Tobacco Free

Air Force leadership would like to remind our warriors that in a time of war we cannot afford to compromise mission accomplishment by using tobacco (smoke or smokeless). Tobacco use decreases night vision, mentual acuity, ability to deal with stress, lung capacity, wound healing and stamina. In the words of the Surgeon General, "A tobacco free force will improve quality of life and enhance mission effectiveness. We cannot continue to compromise our ability to Fly, Fight and Win for America".
