Can you show me were, in the military rules and regulations, that it states that prior to this recent change sikhs were banned from joining the military? If they were banned, there must be a rule somewhere you can quote that says something akin to "And no sikhs allowed". Can you show me that?
Nobody can show you, because that was never the case. Sikhs, Wiccans, Zoroastrians, Hindus, Buddhists, et cetera were never forbidden to serve. They all had to conform to military standards, though. I smell weenies and momma's boys and prima donnas getting their exclusive way.
I served from 1970 to 1991.
