Not sure I feel about this one.  I don’t feel any change in uniform from any religion is a good idea. The military is a uniform service that is supposed to have everyone dressing the same and looking the same. The beards will keep a gas mask from properly sealing.  How will a Jewish soldier react if he sees or has to report to a superior wearing a turban?  I don’t know. I hope it works out but it’s a heck of a lot easier to make everyone dress the same if they want to serve.

Because I like to think, I like to read. I’m into freedom of speech, the freedom of choice. I’m the kind of guy who likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder - “Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of BBQ ribs with the side order of gravy fries?” I want high cholesterol.
