A cigarette when smoked under “Field” conditions. The phase was coined by Lt Col Douglas Genereux while on an exercise in Beaufort County, S.C.. When asked if he would like a smoke and no cigars were available his reply was simply, “Sure, I’ll have a field cigar” and accepted a cigarette
When we are finished putting up this hooch, let’s have a field cigar.
