Pentagon Relaxes Rules On Religious Wear
The Pentagon, Wednesday, relaxed its rules on displays of religious faith among those in uniform.
FOX News Radio’s Steve Taylor reports from Washington:
There are very few members of the Sikh faith in the armed forces, but maybe if they were allowed to wear their turbans and keep their uncut hair, there would be more Sikhs signing up to serve. That’s part of the background for the Pentagon’s changes in rules for religious items and physical attributes. In the future, Jewish soldiers may wear yarmulkes and Muslims may be bearded… if they ask permission first. The Pentagon says it will make every effort to accommodate, unless it affects unit readiness, cohesion, order, discipline, health or safety.
