Ok, this is kinda cool: New Uniform for Sikhs in US Army
More power to 'em...
Muslim, Sikh, Jewish and Wiccan soldiers, marines, sailors and airmen can now request exemptions to strict military uniform and grooming policies.And I don't really mind any of these people wearing slightly altered uniforms or maybe exempted from shaving. But ... what about the female soldiers? What if a Muslima insists that her version of Islam requires her to cover from head to toe? That I'd have a problem with. Yes, this exists.

"And I don't really mind any of these people wearing slightly altered uniforms or maybe exempted from shaving."
Do you really think it'll end with this? Special meals, holidays...certain words or gestures.. and on and on...Just like same sex marriage, is isn't about that, it's SO much more. Not only must we accept it, any hesitation to fully embrace will be meet with the charge of "hate".
Strange word "uniform"...wonder what the root word is...?

Another unclear on the UNI-form concept I guess. Will there be cammie dots for the dot people ???
Just another slice off the old cultural salami.

Since all that our troops accomplished originally in Iraq and Afghanistan has now been totally lost, Thanks Obama, I guess it does not matter how good our troops are.

No one else will be allowed to wear a beard.
Nobody else will be allowed to carry a ceremonial
I love Abby on NCIS. She is a Goth, so she would have to be allowed into the military with her tattoos.
When will this end?

or Gurka as much as I do. I only object to the
relaxation of standards to accommodate any group
of people who demand it.
If they get to wear a turban, then why does a
Texan not have the right to wear a camouflage 10 gallon hat?
The Brits were smart enough to set up segregated
units. If my barracks mate is sporting a full
beard, while I could be disciplined for not
being clean shaven, I would be pissed off.

Don't forget the requirement that they be allowed to perform sex acts as part of their religious ceremonies. (rolls eyes)

Nah, not divisive enough to make it worth anything to the leftist scum pushing this stuff.
Can people of Nordic ancestry demand to be able to wear helmets with the horns on them ???
No Justice, No Peace !!! And it wont be pantywaste octutards involved, but people who have a history/genetic disposition for explosive berserkerism involved here.
