Skip to comments.US Military Now To Allow Turbans, Other Religious Clothing
Posted on 01/26/2014 8:38:17 AM PST by NKP_Vet
The Pentagon has approved a new policy that will allow troops to seek waivers to wear religious clothing, seek prayer time or engage in religious practices. Defense officials say the waivers will be decided on a case-by-case basis and will depend on where the service member is stationed and whether the change would affect military readiness or the mission.

Do the turbans go under or over the helmet? Just askin.
Practicing Christians and Jews will have to pursue/practice/seek their religion off base.
Then, they must not talk about it nor use social media to discuss their religion.
You still won’t be able to wear the crucifix or talk about Jesus though, right? That would be “unconstitutional” according to the Federal activist “judges.”
We could do worse than having devout Sikhs to fight muslims.
Silly you..Pentagon just announced a $25 million contract to develop Kevlar turbans..
Wait until they allow muslim women into the US military. Every American foundation is under assault by the marxists in power and yet we go about our daily lives a majority unaware of the evil that will consume all of us
now THERES an Image for the AGES!
Silly YOU...think the Pentagon would spend only 25 million developing ANYTHING? Heck, $25 million might pay for the initial feasibility study via a university in an influential senator’s state...
The beard and turban are typical of Sikhs not Muslims. Sikhism is a monotheistic religion centered in northern India. Adherent males wear turbans and beards and carry a symbolic dagger. They have a long warrior tradition especially in the Indian and British military.
Simple as ABC. Anyone But Christians.
I heard there are exactly 3 sikhs in the US military
so you figure out who this is all about
and woe be to any commander who denies muslims their beards and 5 times a day prayer
"All waivers submitted by Muslims will be approved. All waivers submitted by Christians will be rejected."
He would think it’s not a military but a tribe.
On the same note, the few Sikhs have been wearing their turbans for decades in the US military with no harm no foul (they are Patriots to our military and the US).
That said, I believe ALL military (enlisted or officer) should wear the same uniform, including enlisted female sailors wearing the traditional dixie cups when in dress uniform. Women want to be the same as men in the military, then let them wear the exact same uniform, along with the same haircut. Yeah, I'm hard core...sue me.
Camo outfits: one for blending in with the sky, the other for use in total darkness.
The last I heard a person can still wear a crucifix. And yes, they can talk about Jesus without being hassled, except in some areas of the world, which as a grunt you probably don't want to do. Think target.
What is it about the word UNIFORM do the "warrior" libs not get?
You are mixing apples and oranges. Sikh's are a different religion and strongly against Muslims. Do some research.
