USA Army Grants Muslim Officers To Leave Beards, Wear Turban, hijab



Sikhs and Muslim officers in the United States Air Force has been granted permission to wear turban and hijab as part of their military uniforms.

According to the Air Force updated dress code reported by CNN, officers can also keep beards.

Under the new guidelines, which were finalised last week, Sikhs and Muslims can seek a religious accommodation to wear turbans, beards, unshorn hair and hijabs, and expect to be approved as long as their appearance is “neat and conservative,” except under extremely limited circumstances.

The final review for the accommodation must take place within 30 days for cases in the United States, and 60 days for all other cases, according to the guidelines. And for the most part, airmen can expect the religious accommodation to follow them through their career.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout
    of your blog? Its very well written; I love what
    youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.

    Maybe you could space it out better?
