    In rare move, US Army OKs beard for Sikh soldier

    The U.S. Army last week granted religious accommodation for a Sikh soldier who is now allowed to grow his beard and wrap his head in a turban.

    “My Sikh faith and military service are two core parts of who I am," Capt. Simratpal Singh told Military.com. "I am proud to serve my country as an Officer and I look forward to being able to continue serving without having to give up my religious beliefs."

    This is what I like about the United States, you can live your religion in a freedom way. You don't have to hide your beliefs and be ashamed
