    Sorry bout that,


    1. I know you are incapable of seeing whats happening.
    2. Most don't see it.
    3. Defense department is going to allow muslim hijabs.
    4. This is the second*Pearl Harbor* but, within the military.
    LINK:Defense department agrees to allow Muslim cadets to wear hijabs – The Religion World – Orlando Sentinel


    ”I have been asked to respond on behalf of the Secretary of Defense Leon E. Panetta to your October 13, 2011 letter concerning Miss Demin Zawity’s request to wear a religious head covering (hijab) while participating in an Army Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) event at Ravenwood High School.

    “Based on your concerns, the Army has reviewed its JROTC uniform policy and will develop appropriate procedures to provide Cadets the opportunity to request the wear of religious head dress, such as the turban and hijab. This change will allow Miss Zawity and other students the chance to fully participate in the JROTC program. Additionally, a representative from the U.S. Army Cadet Command will contact Miss Zawity and provide her the opportunity to rejoin the Ravenwood High School JROTC unit."

    My god. It'll be a fashion holocaust, they'll never get the hijabs to match with those snazzy fit uniforms!

    Frankly, the military is one of the few places where individuality should not be considered, period.

    I assure you, I do get it. Not just almost. The military is no place to make individual concessions. The military is a singular unit with one purpose. It's not a color pallette for an artist making pretty pictures, but a unit with the singular purpose of doing its job. I'd feel the exact same way if any soldier of any religious persuasion was demanding special treatment with regards to his/her belief system.

    FYI this isn't affecting our active duty military one iota.

    This is a high schooler being allowed to wear the head scarf. Not anyone enlisted in the armed forces. the DoD sets the guidelines as to what is acceptable in JROTC in high schools. They decided it was OK for non-enlisted, and presumably minor, students to wear it.

    Carry on.
