US Army To Issue New Rules On Tattoos

It is not uncommon for an soldier to have tattoos but strict new guidelines for what tattoos soldiers are allowed to have are about to go into place.  New rules governing things like tattoos and grooming for soldiers have been approved by the Secretary of the Army and are only awaiting a final signature from Sgt. Maj. of the Army Raymond Chandler. What are the new rules and why the change? David Hyde talks with Stars and Stripes Afghanistan correspondent, Josh Smith about the new rules.
