KORENGAL VALLEY, AFG – OCTOBER 29: An American soldier takes a pinch of tobacco at the Korengal Outpost October 29, 2008 in eastern Afghanistan. Viper Company of the 1-26 Infantry as well as Afghan Army soldiers are based at the remote Korengal Valley outpost and fight in some of the heaviest combat with Taliban insurgents in all of Afghanistan. Unlike in the U.S. where use of tobacco products has decreased in recent years, most soldiers at the base either smoke or dip snuff. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)
