The Sikhs are the real militants on this kind of thing.
Poor widdle baby, he’s too delicate to be in the Navy!!

We have no right to drive (it’s a privilege) but there is a right to be in the Navy?
When I was in Beards were regulation so long as they did not interfere with breathing masks.
I would have a Sikh in combat with me any day.
I’m sure the Chronic-al simply FORGOT to include a photo of him and his beard, right..?
That’s nice, but you won’t find many in the American military, what is it, about 3?
Reagan was right to order them to comply with the American military rules.

I served under Reagan.
Bloody damn good warriors.

Get these #^%=$&£%÷#_ out of my COUNTRY!!!!!!!

What is their tradition on the treatment of women? We have an older Sikh living nearby. I don’t know him, but he does make his wife walk 10 steps behind him.
Negative, I served through 86.
